Only a handful of Bulgarian comrades read Drugar (Comrade).The first Bulgarian socialist party was founded in 1891. Workers were hardly represented in this party. Not even 0,5 percent of the work force in Bulgaria in this era were factory workers. One year later already a workers' segment of the socialist party broke away to establish a Social-Democrat Union and focus on propaganda among workers by publishing Drugar. Drugar of 3 December 1893 is full of lengthy discussions on questions like 'Is private property allowed?', or 'Can the wealthy survive without workers?'  In 1894 the two tiny parties fused into one new Bulgarian Social Democrat Labour Party.
