Prague´s jewish quarter: nazis didn´t come through
Neonazis had planned their march through the old jewish quarter in Prague.
Demo was legal, in application for it was written, that the demo is for
remembering of Holocaust victims (!). In fact nazis had been planning
march with torches around synagogues like in thirties. Anarchists and
antifascists through all organisations called for blocade of the nazi
march. Our press releases were quoted also in some corporative newspapers.
The plan was to block the street in the middle of jewish quarter near
Staronova Synagogue and not let nazis go beyond this point.
When nazi demo started there were slightly over 30 boneheads, in near
street were waiting for them about 80 antifas and same number of some
jewish organizations members and common people. Authorities stopped nazi
demo at last minute, what was told by police officer to the antifascist
demo. What he hadn´t told was the fact that nazis are marching probably
after negotiations with police on the opposite side around the city
centre. Police instead of stopping their demo - as she act against illegal
anarchist demos - gave protection to the nazis including few mounted
So result of the day was that nazis didn´t come through jewish quarter,
but police allowed them illegal march through the streets of Prague.
Positive fact was that lot of common people joined antifa demo, what is
quite uncommon here. Only problem was propaganda of Izraeli state from few
participators on the antifa demo.
