by Mirek Prokes (through the ESF list) On October 15th, about 400 people participated in the demonstration called Real Democracy Now and demanded participatory democracy, social justice, decent life and sustainable development. The meeting took place in the very centre of Prague (Republic Sq.) and was followed with a march to the buildings of the Government, Parliament and President (Prague Castle). A very broad range of people took part, including those from the civic initiatives SDT (Real Democracy Now!), Alternative from Below, Humanist Movement, No to Military Bases!, For Alternatives, Socialist Solidarity, New Anticapitalist Left, anarchists and individuals from the Communist, Social Democrat and Green parties. They were chanting i.a.: "Your crisis, our poverty", "Cancel debts, they are not ours", "System against the people, people against the system", "People are not goods", "Life is not stock exchange", "Rule of money damages the people", "We are not sheep". Media report (in Czech) with a photo is available at http://www.halonoviny.cz/articles/view/228052 A much bigger demonstration and a march, organized jointly by civic initiatives and trade unions, will be organized in a similar way on the next Saturday, Oct 22nd.
