Around 800 people, mostly employees of health care institutions, gathered on Hviezdoslavovo námestie in Bratislava on May 28 to protest a situation in Slovakia's health care industry which they believed had become unbearable. "Resign, resign," ralliers chanted, calling on Ľubomír Javorský, the Slovak Minister of Health, to leave his post. According to Tibor Šagát, the opposition SDK health care expert and a former health care minister himself, the health care industry is currently 10 billion Sk ($294 million) in debt.
