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."
