Police detain activists protesting wood harvesting

On April 25, police broke up a seven-hour protest organized by Greenpeace in the Tichá Dolina valley in the High Tatras National Park, where nature conservationists were protesting the harvesting of wood left at the site after the High Tatras' 2004 windstorm. The activists had been blocking access to the site since 04:30.

Greenpeace spokesperson Juraj Rizman said that the police stopped the protest. The police detained twenty members of the organization by force, some of which were from Poland and the Czech Republic.
