March against neo-Nazis tomorrow

PEOPLE against Racism and the parents of 21-year-old Daniel Tupý from Žilina, who was stabbed to death on November 4, probably by skinheads, announced a march against neo-Nazi violence in Slovakia for tomorrow at 17:00 in Bratislava, the SME daily reported.

Nobody has yet been arrested in connection with Daniel’s murder.

Tupý was murdered without apparent reason in Bratislava as he was going to his band rehearsal. On November 7 Daniel's parents and People against Racism lit candles on the murder scene - the Petržalka side of the Danube River bank.

Police suspect that skinheads are responsible for the murder. According to estimates there are 3,000 skinheads in Slovakia, around 200 of who are considered to be radical.
