A march to celebrate the fascist wartime Slovak State will be organised in Bratislava on Saturday, March 12. The spokesman for the Bratislava district of Staré Mesto, Tomáš Halan, said the march was permitted for Saturday, March 12, between 13:00 and 17:00, the SITA newswire reported.

It should start at Hodžovo Square in front of the Presidential Palace and then continue to Martin Cemetery, where the grave of the president of the Slovak State, Jozef Tiso – who was executed for treason after the war – was reportedly buried until recently. According to the website of the far-right Slovenská Pospolitosť, the so-called "March for the Nation" should start at 14:00 and is being organised by Mária Sýkorová. In the 2010 municipal elections, a woman with the same name was a Ľudová Strana - Naše Slovensko (People's Party - Our Slovakia) candidate for the office of mayor of Bratislava-Petržalka and for a seat on the Petržalka municipal council.

On Friday, March 11, an anti-fascist cultural event will also start called DOSŤ BOLO TICHA (Enough of Silence). Aimed against fascism, neo-Nazism and big celebrations of March 14 – the day in 1939 when the Slovak State was announced – it will last for several days and include discussions, concerts and a film marathon, the organisers informed The Slovak Spectator.
