Communist Party celebrates May Day at Holešovice fair grounds
The Communist Party traditionally invited its supporters to the Holešovice fair grounds. Speakers at the gathering included the last Communist Party head of government Miloš Jakes, who said that over the past 20 years the masses had been impoverished, while the rich had grown richer. Politics is moulded according to the business in interests of a select, privileged group, the 91-year-old former leader said. Like other parties celebrating May Day, the Communists used the occasion to present their candidates for the European elections and urge voters to come to the polls.
