Brodské-Lanžhot crossing between Slovakia and Czechia likely to be blocked by protestors

Slovak cross-border workers are set to protest against government coronavirus measures on several border crossings at 5pm this Wednesday afternoon. This should include the blocking of the Brodské-Lanžhot border crossing between Slovakia and the Czech Republic, Slovak news site Pravda.sk reported, citing the representative of the demonstrators Juraj Martina. He warned that some protestors may also block smaller border crossings.

The demonstrators are unhappy with the Slovak government’s measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus. They see these as inconsiderate to cross-border workers who are required to pay for their own PCR test in order to be able to get to work.

Protests are also planned on selected Slovak border crossings with Hungary and Austria.
