The student initiative #niejenamtojedno (we-do-mind) will protest on the afternoon of April 20 in front of the Government Office, the SITA newswire wrote. The initiative informed they would hold up the letters of the last sentence from the last story by murdered Slovak journalist Ján Kuciak, between 16:00 and 19:00.

“We still consider it very topical, even today,” the students claim, as cited by SITA. The protest starts at 16:00 in Freedom Square.

The initiative wants to again remind the public that it is demanding a trustworthy investigation into the cases reported by Ján Kuciak, the Slovak journalist murdered in February together with his fiancée, Martina Kušnírová.

“We will only come to trust (investigation bodies) after the systemic changes in the police corps have been completed,” the students wrote. “And when Special Prosecutor Dušan solves the cases involving those in power instead of sweeping them under the carpet.”

They add that they support the activities and demands of the For a Decent Slovakia initiative and call on public officials to stop bowing to the pressure of power groups.

“They should stop doing what is easy and start doing what is right,” the students’ initiative sums up, as quoted by SITA.
