Participants hold cartoon ears during a protest against a bill allowing round-the-clock surveillance of the Internet and mobile communications of suspected criminals in front of the Bulgarian Parliament building in Sofia on January 14, 2010. The bill, which passed the first of two readings in parliament in December, gives the interior ministry access to data on e-mail and mobile telephone communications of anyone suspected of a crime punishable with jail terms of two years and more.
