Prague, March 12 (CTK) – A crowd of 150 expressed support for Czech President Milos Zeman and mistrust in Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka (Social Democrats, CSSD) at a rally in Prague.
An incident occurred when a group of the protesters, playing the vuvuzelas and shouting insults, forced out reporters from the public broadcaster Czech Television (CT) from the area.
The police had to separate the two groups.
Speakers at the demonstration expressed a number of demands such as the end of the current coalition government, emphasis on Slav solidarity and the cancellation of a register of paid health services.
There was a petition for the revocation of Czechoslovakia’s division in 1993.
A speech was delivered by Miroslav Sladek, former leader of the extreme rightist Chairman of the Assembly for the Republic – Czechoslovak Republican Party (SPR-RSC) that had some influence in the 1990s.
He said there was a need of moving from words to acts and to topple the government.
Other speakers criticised former Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg (TOP 09).
