Anti-government demonstration took to the streets of Prague on Saturday to protest against migration, local media reported.
PRAGUE (Sputnik) — According to the Czech radio, some 200 citizens took part in the rally that was organized by far-right groups at Prague’s Wenceslas Square. The protesters called on the government to halt the spread of Islamisation.
The protesters also expressed dissatisfaction with the European Union’s deal with Turkey on readmission of undocumented migrants, as it will make it easier for migrants to enter the EU countries, according to the Novinky news website.
Earlier this month, Brussels and Ankara struck a deal, which will see all migrants arriving illegally from Turkey to Greece returned back. In exchange, the EU will resettle thousands of Syrian refugees directly from Turkey.
