A protest rally "against violence in various forms" organized by the organization, New Free Slovakia (Nové Slobodné Slovensko) in Presov on the afternoon of August 14 ended without any major incidents despite provocation by about twenty members of the Antifa movement, the SITA newswire reported.

Prešov police said no interventions were necessary during the rally and subsequent march and that the rally closed at 19:00 as planned. 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
