Thousands of Czechs stage anti-refugee, anti-Muslim rally in Prague

Several thousands of Czechs used a national holiday — Independent Czechoslovak State Day — to rally against refugees in towns around the Czech Republic on Wednesday, a week after the UN slammed the country’s treatment of new arrivals as “degrading”.

Up to 5,000 people took to the streets in Prague and four other towns on the country’s national day. In the capital, riot police intervened to separate anti-refugee protesters from around a hundred people staging a counter-demonstration.
