Supporters of Democratic Burma Gathered in Prague

A few dozens of people came to express their solidarity with Burma demonstrators, to disapprove violence and to honour those who were shoot to death.

The demonstrators laid flowers and candles to the memorial of events of the 17th November 1989, that evokes the beginning of the Velvet Revolution. The situation in the former Czechoslovakia however, proceeded without casualties- unlike in Burma, where the army was more or less ordered to corporeally punish anyone, who doesn’t conform with injustice.

Czechs brought banners like “Free Burma“ or “Stop the Bloodshed in Burma”, photographs from Burma and the unofficial flag, that symbolises the Burma’s folks desire for democracy. Some of the demonstrators came dressed in red, that symbolises monks’ robes.

From the politics came Marek Benda, stating that during 17th November any support was needed. It is necessary to show they are not alone there, and to appeal to China representatives. „It should be they, who intervenes“

The next demonstration is planned on Thursday, in front of the China embassy in Prague. Similar demonstrations take place in other cities of Europe.

The hotel is located in a quiet area that is merely a ten-minute walk from the city centre.
