“The abolition of the iron curtain, the accession to the European Union and the Schengen Area meant a real return of Slovakia to the free, open world and belongs to the biggest post-November achievements,” reads the call provided to The Slovak Spectator by activist Juraj Mesík.

The call responds to the statements of Prime Minister Robert Fico, who said that he is ready to build steel wire barricades on borders with Austria and Hungary in case of one-sided Austrian measures and “in fear from huge migration pressure”. Such a step made by a politician, who did not notice the November 1989 revolution, is founded on the absurd and hysterical idea that Slovakia is endangered by huge migration pressure from Austria, according to the call.
