On 1st August 2001 a protest meeting was held in front of Italian Embassy in Slovakia.

It was organised by members of PA-AKOP-IWA and Slovak section of CSAF and was a second demo in one week this time aimed at immediate release of two Slovak activists detained when leaving Genoa with Austrian anticapitalist caravan.

We were dealt as not welcomed in the place from the part of the embassy officials, they refused to take our protest statement and didn‘t let us give it personally to the Embassador. Actually, the translator just didn't wanted to tell us anything and turned his back to us (literally) and went away. Second time we tried to give the statement, we were told to put it into their mail box.

By the way, the wall of the embassy which was spray-painted last week is already cleared. It seems like a provocation :)


We call for international support for two Slovak activists detained with Austrian anticapitalist No Border No Nation caravan. Patrik B. (anarchist, 20 years old) is held in Pavia and Katarina C. (sympathiser of anarchism, 18) is in Voghera. They face chrages which could send them behind bars for 8-13 years with no real evidences!

Both are our friends and comrades and we will do whatever we can to help them. However, as the social situation in our country is very bad and our resources are very limited, WE NEED HELP from abroad.

Right now we are tying to contact a good lawyer in Italy and only the telephone calls will cost us a huge amount of money.

PLEASE, support your comrades abroad, support Patrik and Katarina. You can send financial support to the bank account:

Postova Banka

If there are any people who can give us information about the current situation of both detained, please, let us know, it is very hard to get some reliable info.

We appreciate all the info and finances and thank you beforehand for very little help you can offer us!
