Putin-Bush: no large demonstrations expected

NO large demonstrations are being planned for the upcoming Bush-Putin summit, according to the daily SME. However, some small, peaceful protests are planned.

With only eight days to go before the summit in Bratislava, spokeswoman for Bratislava’s Old Town council, Monika Voleková, confirmed to SME that there is a protest being planned to take place in the Old Town.

" We can't forbid any gatherings, we only register them," said Voleková.

Hodžovo, Hviezdoslavovo and Slobody squares are
reserved for a movement called "Ani Putin ani Bush" (Neither Putin nor Bush).

According to the movement's chairman, Štefan Szilva, there will be a "small, symbolic and peaceful" protest.
