Czechs Don't Want US Military Presence in Their Country- 2/3 Don't Want Radar Base

26 May 2007 at 5:17:49 PM


How would WE feel if a foreign government wanted to put a military base on our soil? Czech Government says PFFFFFF to the people who live there. The govt must be getting a LOT of money from the United States.

 Czechs have protested in Prague against US plans to locate a radar base in their country as part of an American anti-missile shield.

Photo"We want a national referendum, before we reply to the US request," said Josef Hala, the mayor of Jince, the town 60km from Prague where the radar base would be built.

 Organisers of Saturday's "No Base" demonstration said nearly 2,000 people took part in the protest against the plan, which is backed by the government of Mirek Topolanek, the Czech prime minister.

 The Czech government has already said it will not call a nationwide referendum.

We are fighting a David and Goliath battle," said Jan Tamas, one of the demonstration's organisers.

"After a year we can see that the government ignores public opinion and all arguments against the base. We must call for their dismissal," he said, prompting chants of "dismiss, dismiss", from the crowd.
"No American base in the Czech Republic", "We do not want US occupiers and their radar", read some of the banners at the protest.
