Unions cancel road block, announce march

The unions have decided to back off from a plan to block automobile traffic on Prague’s main thoroughfare and to march on the city instead, forming a demonstration at Palackého náměstí. From there they intend to move to the Ministry of Finance, leave bails of straw at the Office of the Government and continue to Prague Castle. The march is expected to end at noon. The unions say they expect around 3,000 people to participate.
