Demonstrations during the visit of George W. Bush in Prague

American president George W. Bush will arrive in Prague today in the evening. Several demonstrations will take place in the city center, to express disagreement with the possible US radar base in the Czech Republic.

The biggest demonstration will be at the Hradcanske namesti (Castle Square) in front of the Prague Castle. It will start at 6 pm and there should be around 1000 demonstrators. It is organized by the initiative Ne zakladnam (“No to the radar base”).

Other protests are planned to take place at the Old Castle Steps (there will be a campaign about the US policy), at Trziste in front of the US Embassy and at Marianske hradby. There will be a “clown parade” to the Castle Square, because of the “visit of the king of the clowns”, as the organizers say.

The same parade will be held on Tuesday. The campaign at the Old Castle Steps will also continue tomorrow.

It is possible that the demonstrations will be restricted by the police, which plans to close the area of the Prague Castle, including the Castle Square.
