To commemorate the 19th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution some 1,000 people took part in a peaceful demonstration organised by the non-parliamentary Civic Conservative Party (OKS) in Bratislava on November 17.

Some of those who appeared were leading figures in the events 19 years ago, such as Fedor Gál, Peter Tatár, and František Šebej. In their speeches – at SNP (Slovak National Uprising) Square, where the original rallies took place – they called for national and civic tolerance, and criticised actions taken by the Justice Ministry.
