Skinheads protest Turkey's entry to EU

Some 30 young extremists gathered in front of the Presidential Palace in Bratislava on May 1 to protest Turkey's proposed entry into the EU.

The protesters at the demonstration, organized by Slovenská Pospolitosť (Slovak Togetherness), a group of extreme nationalists, marched to Hviezdoslav Square shouting "We stand for Slovakia" and "For God and nation". Then the protesters, monitored by police, moved to Slovenské Narodné Povstanie (SNP) Square where they warned bystanders of the dangers of the 'islamisation' of Europe.

Some 20 anti-fascists protested at the gathering, but police did not report any incidents.
