Prague protests soaring cost-of-living and Nato proxy war

MORE than 10,000 people hit the streets of Prague on Friday to call on the Czech government to resign over the soaring cost-of-living crisis.

The protesters also called on the nation to leave Nato and to renew ties with Russia in an attempt to bring down prices.

The demonstration, which was joined by the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia and other progressive groups, is the latest of a series of protests across Europe about the escalating cost-of-living crisis and dissatisfaction over the proxy war being waged by Nato in Ukraine.

Called under the banner “Czech Republic First,” the protest was the third organised in the Czech Republic, all of which have blasted the EU sanctions against Moscow as the source of increased fuel prices.

This month has also seen massive demonstrations in France, Germany, Italy and Romania. Last month saw similar large protests in Spain and Belgium.

Thousands also took to the streets in towns and cities across Britain on October 1 to protest against the cost-of-living crisis. A number of unions are also taking strike action to secure pay rises that keep pace with rising fuel and living costs.
