03. February 2020 The anti-racist festival Slovak Pub begins tonight

Pubs from all corners of the country decided to express their attitude, and a few days ago a pub in Prague, where Nina Rosa and Ján Skypal had performed, joined the cause. Even the British magazine for music professionals IQ informed about this Slovak initiative. The event has already exceeded all our expectations, especially in terms of interest, pubs, artists and bands. Since the interest is huge, we thought that some you could find useful a simple and concise website, so here it is: https://slovenskakrcma.sk/. It contains a list of pubs and bands with links to their websites, as well as a map of Slovakia with concert venues marked. It will help you easily find out which nearest pub you can go to and show with your presence that most of the visitors to the pub in Slovakia are not racists and do not identify with fascist views.  Today we have added a calendar of Slovak pub, where you can find a chronological list of concerts. Their number is not finite yet, many will be added in the calendar. On https://slovenskakrcma.sk you will find the event calendar, as well as a list of pubs and artists who participated without claiming any fee or reimbursement of any costs.

In cooperation with a number of pubs, artists and organizers of cultural events all over Slovakia, we have launched the Slovak pub initiative. “We believe that most of the pub frequenters in Slovakia are not racist and do not identify with fascist views. It was the people from pubs that Robert Fico referred to when he approved of the statements made by ex-member of the parliament Mazurek after his final conviction by the Supreme Court: “If the Supreme Court's verdict is to be a measure of what is a criminal offense regarding statements on Roma, law enforcement authorities might as well enter any pub in Slovakia and lock up all the customers, including dogs lying on the ground.” We do not agree with the division of citizens into a café and a pub society. We frequent both and we meet great people in pubs as well as in cafes. To show that Slovakia is not a racist country, we are organizing the “Slovak Pub” festival. The event will be held on 4–16 February in pubs throughout Slovakia.
