Protests against U.S. radar base in the Czech Republic

There are lively debates these days concerning placing U.S. radar base in the Czech Republic. The public opinion divides people into two groups; to those who support the U.S. radar base in the Czech Republic and to those who refuse it for the fear that it would put the country in a great danger.

Two days ago tens of activist from the association NE zakladnem (No to the bases) protested in Wenceslas Square to show their disapproval. The government, according to these activists, deceive people by claiming that the U.S. radar base means no risk for the Czech Republic.

A difference of opinion can be seen also in the government. While the Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek says that there is no need for referendum and that this matter should be decided by experts in the field, the opposition parties ask for the referendum.
