Boyan Rasate has been Arrested

Last night, far-right demagogue and presidential candidate Boyan Rasate was detained by the metropolitan police. He was arrested due to an organized attack on an LGBT community center during a gathering of the trans community. He, alongside 10 more people, stormed into the LGBT center, breaking everything in sight, and assaulting a handful of members.

Yesterday, Amnesty International officially urged for his arrest and prosecution.

This is a great victory for curbing violent, anti-LGBT extremism in Bulgaria. Hopefully, this is just the start of a wider crackdown on violent attacks against people of the LGBT community.
