Prague city officials banned an anti-radar rally that was to take place on Jana Palacha square 5 April, on the same day that US President Barack Obama will be visiting the Czech capital. The town hall said the ban is to prevent complications in the area that is likely to be the place of Obama’s speech. Is the ban really for security reasons? Or is it because the rally was going to protest building a US radar base in the Czech Republic, a plan supported by the government?

The Czech Republic is a country where demonstrations take place almost every month. Many of them are organised by supporters of the far right movement. How come officials do not ban these rallies, which are often accompanied by racist remarks and violence against Roma and other ethnic minorities? Is it because there is freedom of speech in this country?

  • Do you think it was a good decision to ban the rally during Obama’s visit?
  • Should similar measures be taken to control far-right racist actions?
