(en) Media, Czech anarchists celebrate May Day

Date Sat, 02 May 2009 09:25:24 +0300



Prague - Some 130 participants attended the May Day celebrations by the Czechoslovak
Anarchist Federation (CAF) that took place in Prague's centre without any incidents today.
The rally started by a festival against racism, with the group Edelweiss Piraten playing.
"The festival is a reminder of the struggle for socially fair society," organiser Lukas
Jelinek from the Anti-Fascist Action said. ---- "Love music, hate Nazis," a moderator said
at the beginning of the festival. ---- Over ten Czech and foreign bands eventually played
at the festival, including the French La Fraction. ---- The anarchists also marched
through the town. ---- The anti-riot police saw no incident. ---- An anarchist told the
crowd May Day was an anarchist holiday.

"The holiday was usurped by Marxists from the Second International. The men shot dead in
the strike for the shortening of working hours were anarchists," she said, referring to
the strike of Chicago workers in 1886.

Some participants laid flowers at the plaque paying homage to the 100th anniversary of the
first May Day celebrations in Prague that was installed in 1990.

The marchers waved banners saying Together against All Forms of Oppression, shouting
slogans against capitalism.
