Demonstration against reforms proposed by government

Brno (Czech Republic)
07 Apr 2011

The WwW base team in Brno co-organized a demonstration against currently proposed reforms. The Czech government is planning to make major changes to the pension system, healthcare, education system and other areas. According to experts, these reforms will lead to a significant reduction in the living standard of most citizens.

WwW wants to prevent the radicalization of the population and possible violent riots that may occur due to the inconsiderate steps expected. The result of three weeks of organizing was the gathering of 700 people in Brno on April 7. The event involved a dozen other civic initiatives and through this collaboration interaction between different groups has been established.
