Several dozen people, to which during the day added another, came out en masse already Clinic. When they wanted to add to the rest of the parade on Wenceslas Square, trying to cordon them out of their own bodies evidently avoided all of the colors of the rainbow disoriented police. Eventually, though blunt force subsided and there was a fusion of the two events. Still, it was pink and black block unmistakable, and this for several reasons: the slogans on the picket chants of "Feminism lives, the struggle continues!", "A-anti-anti-capitalists" or "Lollipops for all!" And especially intensive swirling undercover cops supervising smoothness of the capitalist order.
