Prague - June 18th

18 June- Demonstration about 350 people meet in the center of Prague and made lot of problems to banks and TNCs, police again give over 1000 policemans so they were really angry when they saw that we made a fun and didnt meet in such a numbers as on streetparty on 5th of june. After about 30 minutes standing in really rainy and cold weather crowed went for a march through the center and becouse of shity weather action ended earlier than we planned...

There were also direct actions around all Czech, but dont have information how they ended at this time, also activists in different cities did infoshops and inform about J18th and actions around the world.

Two people arrested but relesed latter that day. Police becouse of bad coordination complitly blocked trafic in the center when they followed the crowed expecting the rioting, but the were wrong at this time we wanted just make a fun from them and from all that fucking TNCs bastards and we did it...

5th of June- 3rd Prague streetparty

The streetparty began on a hond much more. After the "official" event ended people joined the protest march which was lively but proceded through the center without any incident (sure there was really big chaos in trafic), until we had crossed over to Old Town district. As the crowed was walking past the bottom of Petrin hill we realised that people probably head to the US embassy. We were right. The police were badly organised inspite of 1000 policemens, 2 hellicopters, waterguns, horses...etc. at this point and the now angry crowed attacked the building withbottles and stones, breaking man windows. It was only a metter of time till police arrived...but at this moment they let us continued up the Prague castel where things seemed to end. After a rest about 500 people walked from the castel back to the center but riot police were much in evidence at this time, crowed tried to attacked McDonalds, KFC, and one TV station... Police arrested 114 people, 9 policemans were injured - 2 hardly, 1 McDonalds demolished, policestation and few cars with broken windows. Actions continued till 1am over all Prague.
