Czech Republic: Climate activists to protest in central Prague Oct. 21

Climate activists to protest in central Prague, Czech Republic, Oct. 21; increased security likely, disruptions possible.

Event

Climate activists plan to protest at the Old Town Square in central Prague starting at 12:00 Oct. 21. The purpose of the action is to pressure the government to stop all investments in fossil fuels.

Authorities will likely deploy additional security forces to monitor and facilitate the action. Large crowds and associated security measures might prompt localized business and transport disruptions in the surrounding area. The demonstration will most likely be peaceful.

Advice

Avoid the demonstration as a routine security precaution and to mitigate associated disruptions. Check public transport schedules and local traffic conditions for disruptions before beginning journeys; allow extra time to reach destinations in Prague’s Old Town (Stare Mesto) area the afternoon of Oct. 21. Heed instructions from security services and leave the area at the first sign of a confrontation.
