The chief organizer of the rally, Radovan Novotný, told SITA newswire that they were satisfied with the protest and the attention paid to the rally by the general public.

He dismissed allegations that they are a Nazi organization. He said that they differ from other citizens by more conservative opinions and that they respect tested values and do not feel any hatred to other groups of Slovak residents. SITA
