Activists march through Prague in support of Russian Pussy Riot
Prague, May 31 (CTK) - About 30 young activists in coloured bacalava helmets marched through Prague this evening in protest against the imprisonment of Russian female punk band Pussy Riot members who had expressed disagreement with the Russian government.
The Czech activists from the Strategie 31 group followed the example of "people's promenades," how the seemingly unorganised anti-government protests in Russia are referred to.
The activists stopped at several places in Prague, that are linked to Russia, gave lectures, read from Mikhail Bulgakov's books and in front of the Russian embassy they said prayers.
The chief organiser, wearing a green bacalava helmet and mask, said the march was staged "in support of courageous Russians who are struggling for their rights."
The protesters carried a banner reading "For Democratic Russia."
