Prague - The Czech platform Stop to the Government, comprising trade unions, civic groups and associations, plans a demonstration and a march against the government in Prague on November 17, CMKOS union umbrella organisation head Jaroslav Zavadil said today.
He said the government has lost the mandate to lead the country after the recent regional and Senate elections and that this is the worst government the Czech Republic has had.
The protest event to be held under the motto "Democracy Looks Different" will be held on the day when the Velvet Revolution that toppled the communist regime in 1989 started in the Czech Republic.
The event will start at 11:00 in Wenceslas Square where various groups will have their stalls and presentations.
The demonstration alone will start at 13:00 and about one hour later a march will leave for National Street that is a symbol of the beginning of the post-communist changes in then Czechoslovakia.
The organisers will not secure transport to the event like to the previous large protest on April 21. The event against the government reforms was attended by some 100,000 people.
