Reader feedback: Xenophobic organisation

Re: STV halts ad for Hungarian weekly, By Lukáš Fila, August 11 - 17, Vol 9, No 30

Matica Slovenská has always been more about attacking Slovakia's numerous minorities - Hungarians

(especially), Jews, Gypsies, Germans - than about advancing Slovak culture, which it claims to be about. This

paranoiac and xenophobic organisation still believes in the 19th century nationalistic misconception that the

advancement of one nation can only be achieved to the detriment of others.

What's worse is that it turns out that the Slovak media are walking at the leash of this anti-democratic

organisation that, if brought to the European Court at Strasbourg, would probably be banned.
