Bratislava Old Town turns down public rally request

BRATISLAVA's Old Town district turned down the application of a Hungarian youth organization, the Youth Movement of 64 Counties, to hold a public rally and parade on September 16 in the city centre.

BRATISLAVA's Old Town district turned down the application of a Hungarian youth organization, the Youth Movement of 64 Counties, to hold a public rally and parade on September 16 in the city centre.

Bratislava municipal officials said they had rejected the application because the 64 Counties is an extremist group that calls for the restoration of the Greater Hungarian Empire in Central Europe.

"This is an extremist organization. I had it verified by the police," Old Town Mayor Peter Čiernik told the TASR news agency.

The organization claimed it wanted to protest against violence, and that the rally would have had some 400 participants.

They wanted to have the procession move via the Fajnorovo nábrežie waterfront area to Gondova and Pribinova streets where the Interior Ministry is located.

"They have 15 days to appeal the decision," Čiernik added.
