Gorilla Protest organiser arrested

ONE OF the primary organisers of the ongoing Gorilla Protests, Lucia Gallová, was arrested by the police after she failed to respond to repeated appeals by police officers to remove herself from a buffer zone between protesters and police during a demonstration held in front of the parliament building on February 29, the TASR newswire reported.

ONE OF the primary organisers of the ongoing Gorilla Protests, Lucia Gallová, was arrested by the police after she failed to respond to repeated appeals by police officers to remove herself from a buffer zone between protesters and police during a demonstration held in front of the parliament building on February 29, the TASR newswire reported.

The demonstration involved several dozen people who were demanding that parliament vote to end MPs’ immunity from criminal prosecution during the parliamentary session held on that day.

The demonstrators had earlier threatened to form a human chain around the parliament building and block its exits until the legislation was passed. But the building was surrounded by metal barricades set up by the police and forming such a chain was impossible.

Aside from Gallová, police apprehended four other individuals: three for failure to respond to police appeals and one for attacking a public official, TASR wrote.
