Yesterday, on the Czech state holiday called “Struggle for Freedom and Democracy Day”, hundreds of people marched through Prague to protest the Government’s restrictions in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, with some estimating that more than 1 000 attended, many of whom did not wear facemasks as required. The event was organized by a group calling itself “One Common Czech Heart for Freedom” (Jedno společné české srdce za svobodu) and was monitored by several dozen police officers and members of anticonflict teams.
