(en) Czech, Kladno, Anarchists and skinheads fight + anti US missile bases

Date Sun, 01 Oct 2006 23:18:53 +0200

Kladno, Central Bohemia, Sept 28 (CTK) - An authorised
demonstration of the nationalist Patriotic Front was followed by
skirmishes between anarchists and followers of the extreme right in
Kladno today, the spokeswoman for the Kladno police told CTK.
Some 150 followers of the far right came to Kladno to celebrate the
Czech national holiday. Despite constant police supervision,
anarchists and nationalists provoked each other, which eventually
led to a number of smaller and bigger skirmishes, the spokeswoman said.
The police detained three skinheads and charged them with breach
of the peace, she added.

A group of about 15 anarchists clashed with 20 nationalists on the
local pedestrian zone. The police stopped the brawl, but remained

However, groups of anarchists, children and Romanies stayed in the
town centre and provoked the far-right activists by chanting their

Teams of heavily armed police with dogs had to be moved repeatedly
across the city according to the latest events. However, at about 6:00
p.m. the situation in the town visibly calmed down, the
spokeswoman said.

The police have limited their special measures, but they will be still
patrolling the town at night, she added.

Czech Anarchists Protest Proposed US Anti-Missile Base


Europe, Kladno/Caslav - A demonstration of anarchists against the plan to
establish U.S. anti-missile bases in the Czech Republic was staged at Jan
Zizka z Trocnova square in Caslav.

The authorised event, organised by the group CSAF-Centre, attracted
some 50 anarchists and the same number of ultra-right activists.

There was no direct clash between the two groups.

Organisers said that the anti-missile base would expose the Czech
Republic to the risk of a nuclear strike. Far right followers
interrupted the speech delivered by the chief organiser by
chanting their slogans and ridiculing applause.

The far right followers shouted "Antifa, ha ha ha" and tossed
coins at the anarchists. "This is our contribution to decent
clothes, you bums," they shouted at the demonstrators.

The protest was patrolled by roughly 200 police.

"The anarchists left the town after 3 p.m. and only a handful
of local extreme right followers stayed in the place," Central
Bohemian spokeswoman Sona Budska said.

"The police had no reason to intervene, no one was detained,"
she added.

At the end of May, NATO published a secret report by military
experts saying that Europe faces a growing threat of attacks
by long-range missiles. According to the report, it would be
technically feasible to build the NATO missile defence shield
that would help protect Europe.

The selected locations in the Czech Republic and Poland are
under consideration.

Americans have similar bases in Alaska and the Marshal Islands.
According to public opinion polls, most Czech and Poles do not
want a U.S. base to be built in their country.

Most Polish politicians approve of the base regardless of the
public opposition.
