Czech Republic: Anti-government protests mark 30th anniversary of Velvet Revolution

AIR
In Czech Republic, lakhs of people took to the streets in the capital Prague as part of major anti-government protests.

Demonstrators are demanding for Prime Minister Andrej Babis to resign over allegations of fraud. It is alleged Babis used European Union subsidies for his private business.

According to media reports, police estimated that over two lakh people were on the streets, while organizers put the number at up to three lakhs.

Yesterday's protest was organized by activist group Million Moments for Democracy, which has staged numerous protests against the government of Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis, urging him to resign.

The protest was held on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, which ended communist rule in what was then Czechoslovakia.
