Response to the fourth pensioners' rally
Prime Minister Robert Golob and Slovenian Government ministers support the public and free expression of opinions and the right to peaceful protest.
In the light of yesterday's rally, we would like to stress that the Government of the Republic of Slovenia has zero tolerance for the spread and promotion of hate speech in society and we condemn it in the strongest possible terms.
Political propaganda that is based on manipulation and misleading the public through the use of inappropriate visual elements and hateful rhetoric is inappropriate and undermines democratic dialogue in the country. Such practices are harmful and unacceptable to the social climate and the Government will not engage in dialogue with such individuals and groups.
