Reader feedback: A real problem

I'm an Australian who has lived in Slovakia and I don't know if many people around the world understand what a big problem racism and neo-fascism are in Slovakia.

I know that especially in the north central part of Slovakia there are many skinhead groups and that the people in this band are probably being prosecuted for more than just owning "Skrewdriver CDs" as Mr Allen puts it.

Knowing from personal experience what it's like to be attacked by such people for simply being about at night (I'm white but a group of my friends, some south American, were attacked in Nitra by a large gang of skinheads).

I applaud the Slovak Police for doing something (and believe me I don't particularly sympathise with the Slovak Police).
