1st May in Prague

Late evening, on the first of May
-The twilit May – the time of love.
Meltingly called the turtle-dove,
Where rich and sweet pinewoods lay.
-Karel Hynek Macha

1st May is in Czech Republic Day of Lovers (more than cold st.Valentine’s day) as well as world-wide Labour Day. But it looks like that all political parties continues in a tradition of communistic days- to connect this day with a political meeting and presentation of their party.

So in time when girls were kissed under blooming cherry-trees, Communistic Party of Czech and Moravia has a meeting near Krizik fountain at the morning, as well as Czech Social Democratic Party in the afternoon, Green Party, Christian Democrats and Civic Democrats were guests at Letna (more at this article).

You can also find two announced demonstrations in Prague streets.
The first were members of the National Resistance, ultra-right association, the second were traditional enemies of skin-heads – Anarchists of with their anti-Nazi banners and watchwords.

About 300 people on an each side were surrounded during march by police cordon. Places common for march of both groups were strictly separated. Thanks to police work, no battle between two groups of radical was possible- only some tomatoes or empty plastic bottles flew in the air.
