“We as Czech people need to care about other things going on in the world. They are risking their lives out there on the streets. It’s incredible.” Jan Liška (People in Need)
Approximately 300 people attended a candlelight vigil on September 28th at the Národní street memorial in support of the oppressed people of Burma. The significance of this place is that it was here that the Velvet Revolution began: it was at this spot that the student protestors were beaten in November 1989, and the news caused brave Czechoslovak men and women to take to the streets. Humanity prevailed and the old regime fell. Sadly, evil and murder prevail in Burma today, as criminals dressed in uniforms choke the struggling masses.
