Wenceslas Square in Prague (24.02.22)

By bliba  
Tears and sharp words at Prague demo

Several thousand people protested against Russia and the war in Ukraine at Wenceslas Square on Thursday afternoon. In extremely emotional speeches, activists of the Ukrainian diaspora declared with tears in their eyes that Ukrainians would never accept a Russian occupation of their homeland.

They will now stand here every day until peace reigns in Ukraine.....while the Ukrainian anthem was played, the people sang loudly and full of emotion with ..... many tears and sadness.

A very topical and poignant image, on the present crisis in the Ukraine, Ollie. Well covering in this reportage from Prague.

Putins aggression in itself demonstrates the need for democracy, where the people’s wishes are carried out instead of the will of the dictator.

How is it in today’s world that so few can still gain power over so many?

Great reportage, Ollie and if only every protestor in the world could be storming the kremlin.
One bullet would stop this senseless war.

Thank you, Ollie. Good work, and we need to work out how to respond. It's not a time for hastiness or for weakness.

Great and very timely reportage Ollie.....Putins miscalculation has backfired...occupying a country of 40 million people that hate you is not going quite as planned. His aggressive move has surely galvanized the western world and marks the beginning of the end for his regime . Time to assist both the Ukrainians and the Russian people to remove the yoke of Dictatorship and totaliarianism off their back .
