Solidarity actions with the countersummit in Prague happened at
Czech consulates in Warsaw, Wroclaw and Szczecin.
Those actions were very small,
made mostly by people who didn't manage to get to Prague.
Some F'n'B was and street theatre was organised in Szczecin.
In Warsaw, anarchists had the leaflet below:


Why we came to the Czech consulate

We are, of course, interested in the protest against NATO. We don't believe
in wars, and the politics of NATO, we don't think that we should be spending
money on offensive weapons while millions of people live in poverty in this
country. We believe that we have a right to let the world know our opinions,
we have the right to organize and protest. We didn't always have those
rights and when we didn't we knew we were living under a totalitarian

The regime is back. People who wanted to protest the Summit in Prague were
often turned back at the border (many with notes written in their passports)
and, if allowed in, met with police harrassment and brutality. Riot police
attack a rented center, police attack people sitting and talking in a pub...
Prague looks like a police state and everybody is assumed guilty and
provoked just because they have a different opinion. This is what democracy
looks like in today's Europe where dissent is being criminalized. This is
why we are here at the embassy.

We want to send a message to the Czech Embassy that they can keep us out now
but they can't scare us or change our opinions.
