The far-right organisation Slovenská Pospolitosť wants to stage another rally against what it calls Roma violence similar to the one it held on August 8 in Šarišské Michaľany, the head of the organisation Marian Kotleba said in an interview for the internet portal Delnicke listy of the Czech extremist group Delnicka Strana (Labour Party).

The far-right organisation Slovenská Pospolitosť wants to stage another rally against what it calls Roma violence similar to the one it held on August 8 in Šarišské Michaľany, the head of the organisation Marian Kotleba said in an interview for the internet portal Delnicke listy of the Czech extremist group Delnicka Strana (Labour Party).

“Unless the government can solve the gypsy problem constructively, we are ready to repeat the action, not only in Šarišské Michaľany but anywhere else where it might be needed,” Kotleba said as reported by the TASR newswire.

At the protest meeting against “Roma terror”, as the organisers called the demonstration, the police detained thirty people including several leaders of Slovenská Pospolitosť. All those arrested have been released. TASR
