145 YEARS FROM VASIL LEVSKI'S HEROIC DEATH

Painting by Boris Angelushev

ОБЕСВАНЕТО НА ВАСИЛ ЛЕВСКИ

О, майко моя, родино мила,
защо тъй жално, тъй милно плачеш?
Гарване, и ти, птицо проклета,
на чий гроб там тъй грозно грачеш ?

Ох, зная, зная, ти плачеш, майко,
затуй, че ти си черна робиня,
затуй, че твоят свещен глас, майко,
е глас без помощ, глас във пустиня.

Плачи! Там близо край град София
стърчи, аз видях, черно бесило,
и твой един син, Българийо,
виси на него със страшна сила.

Гарванът грачи грозно, зловещо,
псета и вълци вият в полята,
старци се молят богу горещо,
жените плачат, пищят децата.

Зимата пее свойта зла песен,
вихрове гонят тръни в полето,
и студ, и мраз, и плач без надежда
навяват на теб скръб на сърцето.

"Vasil Levski's hanging" is the last song of Botev. It was probably created by the end of 1875, because it was not included in "Songs and Poems". It was published in "Calendar for 1876" under the image of Vasil Levski.

MISSION

“THE CIVIL PARLIAMENT” OF BULGARIA

is the “bridge” between citizens and the national government. Its mission is to support such “bridging” so as to facilitate the communication between the society and the national government. It is the new and modern institution of the civil dialogue.

The ESC's mission is to promote civil society organisations access to and involvement in the process of decision-making on strategic economic and social issues.

The main goal of ESC's operation is to enable different representatives of organised civil society to feel free to state their views whereas unanimity on matters of common interest is encouraged. The Council expresses and protects civil society interests by communicating agreed statements and proposals submitted by its members to the executive and legislative authorities.
