A fourth Gorilla Protest is expected in Bratislava on Friday, February 24, the TASR newswire wrote and its venue will be Hodžovo Square at the Presidential Palace.

The Gorilla Protest organisers say the nature of planning for the rally has changed, with the public having more input as their opinions and suggestions can be put forth on Facebook.

One of the organisers, Peter Pčolinský, said that people would prefer to include a march in the event but the organisers have thus far only announced a stationary demonstration at the square. If a march is held, most people stated they would prefer to walk from SNP Square to the Presidential Palace.

"One of the options is marching to Penta headquarters, but it isn't really possible to gather there, as there are only ten metres of space, a fence and a highway," Pčolinský told TASR.
