Over 400 Czech artists call on government to push for Gaza ceasefire

Over 400 Czech artists have now signed an open letter to the Czech government and president calling on them to demand a ceasefire in Gaza and Israel. The group, which includes singer Tomáš Klus, singer-actor Vojtěch Dyk and actress Tatiana Dyková, have aligned themselves with the US group Artists4Ceasefire. Members unveiled a banner reading Artists For Ceasefire at the Anděl music industry awards in Prague on Saturday night.

Czechia has been a staunch supporter of Israel in its war against Hamas since a terror attack by the latter in early October.
