Communists protest reforms

THE SLOVAK Communists Party (KSS), which made it to parliament in the last elections, protested the reforms pursued by the government of Mikuláš Dzurinda, news wire SITA reported.

A communist rally, which attracted about 150 elderly dissatisfied citizens, took place prior to the state holiday on November 13, marking the 14th anniversary of the fall of Communism in the country.

KSS leader Jozef Ševc lashed out at the government for what he called brutal reforms that are "bringing people down on their knees".

The Communists demanded that banks and insurance companies be returned to the hands of the state.
