The Prague police will deploy hundreds of police officers in the streets to monitor the demonstrations and other events planned on November 17, national holiday marking the 27th anniversary of the collapse of communism.

November 17 is the Day of Struggle for Freedom and Democracy that commemorates student demonstrations under the Nazi occupation in 1939 and against the Communist regime in 1989.

The Prague Transport Company only plans one closure in Narodni street that will turn into a pedestrian zone during an event staged by university students. Tram lines will be rerouted from Narodni.
