Petition activity on-line

Petition activity for correct elections

If you're a citizen of the Slovak Republic, you want to support the free and correct elections and you cannot sign the petition because you're not at home now, you can do so by printing out these two documents: the first, and the second page on one sheet of paper without any modifications and with the whole text and sending them to: SDK, Zabotova 2, 81104 Bratislava, Slovakia. (Zabotova as ~Z~abotova).

Any questions, comments, suggestions?
