MS has distanced itself from a May Day protest that is being prepared for Prešov, which was being co-organised by the Púchov branch.

"Matica Slovenská is an institution with no party affiliation and its main goal is to unite Slovak citizens as far as healthy patriotism is concerned," said MS chairman Marian Tkáč in an official statement.
