64 Counties movement plans protests in Bratislava

A HUNGARIAN extremist organization calling itself The Movement of 64 Counties plans to hold a demonstration in Bratislava on September 16. The organizers have registered their event with the local authorities as "a protest against violence" in response to recent attacks on ethnic Hungarians living in Slovakia.

It is expected that 400 people will participate in the protest, which is being organized by the movement's Slovak branches. In their Internet appeal, the group is using an archaic name for Bratislava - Pozsony – as well as the word Felvidék (the upper lands) instead of Slovakia. Both terms were last used before 1918, when Hungary ruled the territory that is now Slovakia.

The Slovak police say they are prepared for the event, and that they will ensure that no crime is committed during the gathering.
