383605 02: A family heads home to communist-era prefabricated apartment blocks November 6, 2000 in Martin, Slovakia. Industrial towns like Martin in central Slovakia have traditionally been strong areas of support for former Slovak Prime Minister Vladimir Meciar, who, in a bid to get his political party, the HZDS (Movement for a Democratic Slovakia), back into power, is currently pushing for a nationwide referendum to be held November 11 in favors of early elections. One local source stated that 70% of Martin''s inhabitants live below Slovakia''s average standard of living. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Liaison)
