Anti-NATO activists optimistic


Anti-NATO activists in Slovakia have collected more than 250,000 signatures from citizens in favour of a referendum on entry into the alliance. In order for a referendum to be called, 350,000 signatures must be collected on a petition. Activists believe they will have the required number by early March.

Head of the anti-NATO petition committee, Eduard Chmelár, said: "I have no doubts that at the beginning of March we will exceed the legally required limit of 350,000 signatures."
