Massive Rally to Support Ukraine Will be Held in Prague

A rally called “Czechia Against Fear” will take place on Wenceslas Square on Sunday, October 30. It is organized by the civic organisation Milion chvilek pro demokracii (A Million Moments for Democracy),  which has organized demonstrations against the government of Andrej Babiš and the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“Come to say together, ‘We can do it! Come to face the fear and show to society that we will stand up for democracy, for Ukraine, and overcome the crisis. Come to be energized with positive energy and hope,” states the official event on Facebook.

“The war in Ukraine, the energy crisis, inflation… understandable fears are growing among people. But in the embrace of the pro-Russian fear mongers who radicalize society in the squares, we will find neither solutions nor peace. They systematically undermine democratic values and sow fear. We need to show that you – hundreds of thousands of other citizens – care about democracy. We must also send a message to the government to act quickly and clearly.”

“In difficult times, we will stand together as democrats to confront fear and demonstrate the power of democracy to make a difference. We will show faith in the system we fought for more than 30 years ago. We will also let Ukraine know that we support it in its struggle for the world we, as the Czech Republic, want to live in.”

On 27 February 2022, the Milion chvílek initiative organized a demonstration on Wenceslas Square in support of Ukraine during the Russian invasion.

It was attended by approximately 80,000 people, and guest speakers included Prime Minister Petr Fiala and Ukrainian ambassador Yevhen Perebyynis.
