Skinheads remember slain Jaroslav Bahna

Over 200 skinheads from Slovakia and the Czech Republic met at a cemetery in the central Slovak town of Prievidza on August 18 to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Jaroslav Bahna, who was killed by a local Romany there on August 24, 1997. The gathering went off largely without incident; the only altercation came when Bahna's father demanded TV cameras not shoot the event, saying it was a private gathering. Present journalists asked for police protection.

A prepared statement was given to media entitled "Stop the Racist Discrimination of White Citizens". The document stated that when whites are murdered by a Roma, the coverage is brief. But when a Roma is murdered by a white culprit, it becomes a huge story. The document then warned white citizens that they could become "victims of a hunt".
