Bratislava joins anti-war protests

An estimated 1,000 demonstrators marched through the streets of Bratislava on February 15, joining global protests against war in Iraq.

The atmosphere of the Slovak march was described as "strongly anti-American and anti-government", in contrast to the Slovak cabinet's expressions of support for the US.

In an open letter to the European Parliament's legislators, the organisers of the demonstration said: "Our country has a sad history of supporting aggressors. We are letting [you] know that the cabinet is not acting legitimately, not in our name."
