Hundreds in Prague join global protest

Around 200 people marched through the centre of Prague on Saturday as part of an attempt to spread the Occupy Wall Street protests around the world. The march passed by the Prague stock exchange before arriving in front of Prague Castle where the protestors plan to spend the night. One of the organizers said the event should draw attention to a lack of civil society in the Czech Republic. Similar demonstrations, inspired by protests in Spain, the US and other countries, reportedly took place in more than 700 cities around the world on Saturday.
