Prague, Nov 17 (CTK) – A satirical march of masks targeted President Milos Zeman, the Czech relations with China and the use of renewable sources of energy in the Prague centre on Thursday.
The march of tens of people walked across the medieval Charles Bridge to the Wenceslas Square in the Prague centre.
The fifth annual march is held by the For_um group with the participation of various groups depicting the current topics.
The march was inspired by the usual Swiss Carnival of Basel (Basler Fasnacht) dating back to the Middle Ages.
Along with Zeman’s mask and a painted lion from the Czech national emblem, there was a golden panda in the march.
It was carried behind several symbolic television screens called “Pandov” (Panda Land), featuring chairman of the Mixed Czech-Chinese Chamber Jaroslav Tvrdik and Mayor of Prague Adriana Krnacova.
A group of secondary school students showed the barometer of fear. It wanted to say that the less refugees have come to the Czech Republic, the bigger the fear of them.
The Greenpeace highlighted the need of the transition from coal to renewable sources of energy.
