A demonstration in support of Czech Television is set to take place on Prague’s Wenceslas Square on Wednesday evening. Entitled We Won’t Give Zeman CT!, it comes in response to an attack by President Miloš Zeman on the station and other journalists during his inauguration speech last Thursday.
The protest will take place at the same time the freshly reinstalled head of state hosts a concert for supporters at Prague Castle. Performers at the event are set to include Helena Vondráčková, Daniel Hůlka, Václav Neckář and Michal David.
Mr. Zeman’s purported intention of undermining Czech Television was also highlighted by filmmakers at the Czech Lion movie awards on Saturday evening.
