Unions, NGOs to stage a protest over the weekend
Representatives of various unions, some NGOs and the public are planning a demonstration for the November 17 state holiday, under the slogan “Democracy doesn’t look like this”. The demonstration is meant to express the participants’ dissatisfaction with the current political leadership and the state of society. The organizers of the common platform Stop to the government! (Stop vládě!) have not revealed the number of people expected to attend the protest on the anniversary of the Velvet Revolution. A protest against government reforms that they organized on 21 April drew approximately 100,000 people.
