Communists will protest against "world emperor" Bush

THE SLOVAK Communist party (KSS) is preparing a protest on the day of the Bush-Putin summit, according to the TASR news agency.

The protest will take place on Kollárovo square in Bratislava, beginning at 16:00.

The KSS will protest against the "imperialistic ruling policy" of the current Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda.

Dzurinda, "makes Slovakia visible at the expense of its humiliation and bowing to the world's emperor, George Bush", according to the KSS.

The Communist party is planning to remember the events of February 1948 (Communist coup d'état in the former Czechoslovakia) as well.
