A picture of Plamen Goranov is pinned on a tree on March 5, 2013 in Varna, next to the site where he set himself on fire, and became a symbol of the three-week wave of protests against corruption. Plamen Goranov, a 36-year-old amateur photographer and rock climber, died the day before after setting himself ablaze on February 20 in the Black Sea city of Varna. Goranov's self-immolation prompted Varna protestors to adopt his cause and turn their initial anger over high electricity bills against the long-time mayor, whom they accused of corruption and favouritism towards a local business group.
