Festival protests anti-Romany violence

A festival of rock music took place in Slovakia on September 29 in memory of a Romany youth murdered in July in Žiar nad Hronom, TASR reported the same day. Rock bands taking part said that the audience was protesting skinhead activities and racial violence. Also on September 29, Romany political activities in both the Slovak and Czech republics met with government officials to discuss possible legislation against racism. The next day 100 people, including Romanies, demonstrated against fascism in České Budějovice. Police held back a group of about 60 skinhead observers. >Alaina Lemon
