Volunteers Clean Swastikas, Hate Symbols in Bulgarian Capital


Volunteers from various ethnic backgrounds in Sofia joined together Sunday to clean up swastikas and other symbols of hate from the walls of buildings in the Bulgarian capital city.

The campaign titled “let’s clean away hate” aims “to facilitate the integration of ethnic and religious communities in Bulgaria, to present successful models of multicultural dialogue, to overcome prejudice and ignorance of the fear of the ‘other’ and to raise public awareness of the manifestations of hatred, xenophobia, racism and anti-Semitism”, the Sofia Globe reported.
