Czechoslovak anti-NATO streetparties

On Saturday September 21 the Prague anti-NATO street party took
place. Around 400 people gathered in a park "Tesnov" in the city
centre and after two hours moved to street rally. The march with
banners like "We are killing humanely, NATO Lmt." or "Reclaim the
streets" and red-black flags blocked traffic on the most busy road in
Prague for about an hour before final occupation of one of the most
busy crossroads for several hours. People sat on the road, listened
to music of a DJs and speeches of delegates of anarchist groups and
played football there. Action finished peacefully after several

Police announced four arrests, we could confirm two. One member of
CSAF was arrested after trying to prevent themselves from being
photographed by secret policeman. The police said that he was giving
a nazi salut (when he covered a police camera by his right hand !!!)
but he was released after several dozens of minutes without actual
being accuse. The second guy was arrested from still unknown reason.

A week before this Prague street party there were another anti-NATO
street party in Bratislava (Slovakia). Around three hundreds people
marched through the city centre shouting slogans against NATO and
militarism. A few anarchists from Czech Republic were prevented to
cross the borders by Slovak border police and were sent back with
stamps in their passports. But the delegate of CSAF Prague managed to
get there and in his speech he invited people from Slovakia to join
the November action against NATO in Prague. 

Both actions were part of anti-NATO campaign and mobilisation to
demonstrations against NATO summit in Prague. Another small anti-NATO
street party took place two weeks ago in a small town of Podebrady.
About one hundred people took part there.
