Interior Minister: Czechia must prepare for possible blockade of government buildings

Czech interior minister Vít Rakušan stated on Czech Television on Sunday that the state must prepare for a potential blockade of government buildings, as announced by the organiser of Saturday's anti-government demonstration, to ensure that they are able to function as normal.

Thousands of protesters gathered in Prague's Wenceslas Square on Saturday calling for the resignation of the government among a list of other demands, in a demonstration organised by the chairman of the PRO party, Jindřich Rajchl. Mr Rajchl announced that he intends to begin an indefinite blockade of government buildings on April 16 and possibly also strikes if the government has not met the protesters' demands or resigned by Easter.
