At least two supporters of the far-right Workers Party for Social Justice, ended up in handcuffs in Prague on Friday afternoon after verbally and physically assaulting the police after they were prevented from continuing in their march towards the Old Town Square. Specially-trained anti-conflict police were on hand to defuse the situation, as several demonstrators demanded they be allowed through on Hybernská street.
Some shouted they should be allowed to continue "in a democracy". Novinky.cz carried live video of the march, which showed several protestors purposely blocking traffic after being told to turn back.
