Prague, May 1 (CTK) – Several dozen people attended an entertaining march against Deputy PM, Finance Minister and ANO chairman Andrej Babis in Prague on Monday.
The march dubbed “Labour Day of Andrej Babis” started at Republic square and continued to Old Town Square in the historical centre at the time when Babis was signing his book at the ANO movement’s May Day event on the embankment.
The police estimated the number of participants in the anti-Babis march at 60-80.
They carried banners referring to various dubious affairs connected with Babis, for instance the suspicion of unauthorised drawing of an EU subsidy for the construction of the Capi Hnizdo (Stork Nest) farm and luxurious holiday resort built for the Agrofert Holding that he owned until February.
The rhetoric of the slogans evoked the May Day celebrations under the communist regime.
The aim of the event was to show possible consequences of the birth of one leader who concentrated immense power in his hands, march organiser Tomasz Peszynsky said.
The beginning and end of the march was accompanied by a car towing a big green leaf symbolising democracy that was biting off by caterpillars called Babis, Putin, Orban, Kaczynski, Trump, (Slovak PM Robert) Fico and (Czech President Milos) Zeman.
The ANO movement held a May Day meeting with citizens on a boat on the Vltava River embankment. Along with Babis, it was attended by the ANO ministers, Martin Stropnicky (defence) and Dan Tok (transport), as well as MP Ivan Pilny.
