The third anti-corruption march will take place in Bratislava on September 25, its organisers stated on the social network.

The demands of the march are the same as in the previous two marches: to investigate the Bašternák and Gorilla scandals, the dismissal of Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák (Smer) and Police Corps President Tibor Gašpar, and the resignation of Special Prosecutor Dušan Kováčik.

“We want to continue the marches as the number of people willing to demonstrate that they care is rising,” reads the statement of the organisers, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “We perceive growing support for our student initiative.”

The students have also launched an anti-corruption petition and managed to collect 70,000 signatures in two months.
