27 October: Shooting in Černová
Černová Residents expressed their dissatisfaction with a church, which had been built using their own financial contributions and the help of their churchman. However, it was to be consecrated by another churchman despite their appeals. The gendarmes shot and killed fifteen participants at a peaceful demonstration, with fifty more injured and others sentenced to prison. This tragedy became known to the wider public and internationally recognised figures protested against the action. This controversy became the basis of discussions related to the observance of human rights in the civilised world and led to discussions about the plight of Slovaks worldwide.
