BRATISLAVA, March 11 (Xinhua) -- More than 1,000 people including several politicians marched against extremism and fascism in this Slovakian capital on Saturday.
"It isn't enough anymore to be part of a silent majority rejecting extremism and fascism, but it's necessary to make one's attitude known aloud," Mayor of Bratislava Ivo Nesrovnal said in his speech.
The capital city of Slovakia has always in history been tolerant, he said.
Bratislava region governor Pavol Freso said that all democrats, both from the Left and the Right, must hold together in the fight against extremism.
"This is why it's necessary to meet and show that we're numerous enough to defeat fascists in any form," Freso added.
The demonstration was part of a series of events called "Anti-fascist Mobilization".
