However, anti-fascist activists have said they will try to block it, with Bratislava Mayor Milan Ftáčnik also publicly supporting their efforts and calling on people to show their civil stance and opinion, Sme wrote.

Activists plan to stop the march, which is due to go from the Presidential Palace to the Martin cemetery, where the grave of wartime president Father Jozef Tiso is located, in SNP Square.
