Prague’s Klinika social centre reopens on Thursday

07-07-2016

The Autonomous Social Center Klinika in Prague’s Žižkov district will reopen to the public on Thursday after being closed for several weeks. A court in Prague has cancelled the preliminary ruling, which prevented the centre from operating. The centre, which helps the homeless and migrants, was forced to close down at the beginning of March after it wasn’t allowed to extend its lease on the grounds that the building had been certified as a health facility and could not legally serve other purposes. Just a few weeks before, Klinika was attacked by extremists during an anti-migrant demonstration in Prague.
