Czech Republic: 120,000 persons attend protest demanding Prime Minister’s resignation

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Czech Republic witnessed its biggest political protest since the fall of communism after an estimated 120,000 people gathered in Prague to demand the resignation of the prime minister, Andrej Babiš. Waving Czech and EU flags, demonstrators filled Wenceslas Square, the scene of euphoric rallies 30 years that ushered in the velvet revolution and ended communist rule in the former Czechoslovakia.

Holding banners saying “Resign”, protesters – including some who had travelled from distant locations – voiced anger over Babiš’s continuation in office despite mounting scandals over the misuse of EU funds.

“He’s like a mafia boss and he’s the worst politician in the Czech Republic – he reminds us of communism,” said Dagmar Kmochova, a shop owner from Kutna Hora, a town 50 miles east of Prague.
