Anarchists march through Prague to protest against alleged police repression

Around 200 anarchists took part in a protest march through Prague city centre on Friday afternoon. According to the organizers the protest was aimed against war, the political elite and the police force which they accuse of repression against anarchists. The police arrested several people this week in an operation against left-wing radicals who are alleged to have committed arson, including setting on fire several police cars and a police station. The march which set off from Střelecký Island passed through Narodní třída and Karlovo náměstí and ended at Naměstí míru in Prague’s Vinohrady district without incident. It was closely monitored by the police.
