Libyan nationals living in Bulgaria along with members of other Arab communities in the country and Bulgarians will stage a rally outside the Libyan embassy in Sofia on March 12 2011, Dnevnik daily reported.

The protest is organised by Youssef Altabib, a physiotherapist and interpreter at the State Agency for Refugees. Altabib lives in the eastern Bulgarian town of Sliven and his initiative has received the approval and backing of Sofia municipality.

According to Dnevnik, protests will demand that the Libyan ambassador support the revolution in the country and declare himself against its dictator, Muammar Gaddafi. Additionally, they will demand his resignation.

Organisers are hoping that Libyans in Bulgaria, along with members of the wider Arabic community, including Egyptians, Iraqis, Tunisians, Afghans and Bulgarians, will be present at the rally. Transport will be made available for those travelling to Sofia from Sliven. According to the report, about 200 people are expected at the demonstration.

"Unfortunately, I have no contact details with any of the Bulgarian nurses who were detained and tried in Libya, but I would like to use this opportunity, through the media, to invite them to attend the rally," Altabib said.

Altabib expressed his wish that any confidential information pertaining to the Bulgarian medics, proving their innocence be released to the public immediately.

Finally, Altabib said that he supports foreign intervention in the Libyan unrest, but only if it's limited to air strikes against military installations that are pro Gaddafi. He is opposed to any ground invasion of his country.
