Large demonstration against new reforms in Prague next month

More than 40,000 people are expected to demonstrate against the new reforms that the government introduced last April. The demonstration was announced by Milan Stech, the chairman of the Czech-Moravian Confederation of Trade Unions after the Saturday’s meeting of trade unions.

Trade unionists are not satisfied with the fact that the government didn’t discuss the reforms with them and didn’t take their suggestions into account. “If the government doesn’t change their attitude, we’ll make other steps,” said Stech.

The demonstration is planned to take place in Prague on 23rd June 2007. The confederation contains 33 trade unions with 610,000 members. How many people will participate is still not clear.
