The first try of hanging up the EU flag was only virtual. The second one was real. The Greenpeace activists first projected the EU flag on the Prague Castle virtually, this yesterday evening however they put a real flag there. Not even the Castle guards managed to stop them.
President Vaclav Klaus refuses to let the EU flag on ‘his’ castle, still the blue flag with yellow stars appeared there. A few minutes later, however, the police have cleared the whole courtyard. A man with red jacket staid on the top of the pole, other five Greenpeace members have unfolded a banner saying “Klaus harms the climate, Czech Chairmanship can help”
It was probably intended as a memento to the euro-skeptical politicians, one of the aims of Czech Chairmanship are negotiations about nature protection.
