People protest government restrictions outside deputy PM’s house

Some 150 people gathered outside the house of deputy Prime Minister Jan Hamáček in the village of Mratín on Saturday afternoon to protest against the restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus.

The event was organized by the Chcipl PES initiative, representing entrepreneurs from the hospitality sector.

Demonstrators held up slogans calling for freedom to live a normal life and an end to government interference. Many of the demonstrators allegedly didn’t wear masks despite standing in close proximity.

Another demonstration is scheduled to take place on March 7 on Old Town Square.
