Czech Republic: Protests against austerity measures

19/09/2003, On Saturday 13 September 15 to 20,000 Trade Union members demonstrated in Prague. The protest was against an austerity package proposed by the government. These reforms were renamed by trade unionists as "deforms” as they carried a coffin to Premier Vladimir Spidla adorned with slogans saying “Government manifesto” and “Spidla’s election promises”. Czech Railway workers blocked the Governments’ office with a railway buffer. The board attached to it read “The gift of the railwaymen’s union to the government of Premier Vladimir Spidla”.

Czech Republic: Tram drivers strike - picket lines attacked by police and thugs

04/02/2003, Prague - The independent federation of tram drivers (FRT) organised a one day strike on February 4 over wage claims. The main demand is that tram drivers wages would be equalized with the wages of other transport workers, like bus drivers in Prague. Picket lines were attacked by scabs, security guards hired by management and the police force. 10 tram drivers were injured in the clashes.

Czech Republic: Councils’ incompetence worsens floods devastation

24/08/2002, At least one quarter of the Czech Republic was flooded last week after flash floods. 14 people died because of the disaster (some of them did not leave flooded houses, and one died when a boat was bombed by the authorities as a ‘safety preventative measure’). The fire fighters and other emergency workers did a huge amount of work – they really are heroes. Immediately after the floods started, they came from all over the country to help. The police mostly controlled areas to stop looting.

Czech Republic: Right wing policies rejected

19/06/2002, Results from last week’s parliamentary elections in the Czech Republic show that the social democrats (CSSD) won with 30.4%, followed by the communist party (KSCM) (18.8%), which is the highest vote for the KSCM since the collapse of Stalinism in 1989.

Czech republic: The battle around Czech State Television

01/01/2001, In the Czech Republic, political competition has made television into an unscrupulous battleground for ambitious bureaucrats, reflecting a government led by rival parties, the rightist ODS and the leftist CSSD, who each want so badly to govern that they have forged an unlikely "opposition agreement."
