Anarchists protest against planned U.S. anti-missile base
Kladno/Caslav, Central Bohemia, Sept 30 (CTK) -
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 told CTK.

"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.

The current Civic Democrat (ODS) government supports the location
of the U.S. base on Czech territory, while the Communists (KSCM)
and the Social Democrats (CSSD) are against it.

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.
