Low turnout in Bratislava

ANTI-WAR protesters demonstrated across eastern Europe on Saturday, February 15, with more than 30,000 people taking to the streets in Budapest to show their opposition to a possible US attack on Iraq.

ANTI-WAR protesters demonstrated across eastern Europe on Saturday, February 15, with more than 30,000 people taking to the streets in Budapest to show their opposition to a possible US attack on Iraq. In Zagreb 10,000 demonstrators marched, and the Stars and Stripes were ceremoniously burned outside the US embassy.

Bratislava, on the other hand, witnessed a more muted event, with just 1,000 demonstrators.

Organisers accepted the event had been poorly promoted, but the low turnout should not be taken as an indication of a lack of concern about world events. If the US cavalry charges, as seems inevitable no matter what, everything will change, and there will be little need for fliers on bus shelters to bring the people of Slovakia onto the streets in protest.
