Anti-globalist does not expect major protest at NATO assembly

THE CO-ORGANISER of protest rallies against NATO in Slovakia two years ago does not expect major demonstrations against the NATO Parliamentary Assembly due to be held in the Slovak capital from May 28 to June 1.

Stefan Silva told news wire TASR that any protests would be small in scale and that foreign anti-globalists did not consider the NATO parliamentary session a priority target.

Organisations such as the International Monetary Fund and World Bank have a much greater impact on people’s lives, Silva added.

Security for the event will be provided by around 1,000 police officers with a further 3,000 on standby.
