Slovaks want to put an end to corruption

Every Friday since last month’s murder of journalist Jan Kuciak, the movement “For an honest Slovakia” has brought out thousands of protesters on the streets. These are the biggest protests Slovakia, now an EU member, has seen since the end of communism in 1989. The protesters demand the end to corruption. Kuciak was working on the Italian mafia's activities in the country when he was killed. Prime Minister Robert Fico has since tendered his resignation, but the protesters say that's not enough.
