Thousands Czech protesters call for new government, direct gas talks with Russia

category international | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Monday October 31, 2022 22:17author by 1 of Indy Report this post to the editors

While Irish government bribes the population with fuel subsidies to stop keep them off the streets

Reuters has reported that on Oct 28th there were thousands of Czech protestors in Prague calling for the government to resign and for direct talks to be held with Russia to supply gas. The suicidal sanctions are hurting and thankfully at least in some places people are beginning to realize the NATO orchestrated war and orchestrated economic suicide are not in their interests.

In the meantime, the Irish government is attempting to bribe the population as they just announced a package of over € 1,200 million to subsidize energy bills this year and early next by paying off €200 of 2.2 million households for the next 3 billing periods. People might remember how hard the government fought to bring in Water Charges which was only going to bring in €150 million. Yet now barely without asking they are forking OUT ten times that much. The question is Why ?

And the answer is to stop the people realizing that none of this is necessary because there is no need for the sanctions because this Ukrainian war was totally orchestrated by the US & NATO and the origins go back to at least the blatant US instigated coup in Kiev in 2014 and where they famously selected who was going to lead the country over the heads of the EU.

The fuel subsidies are therefore a desperate attempt to keep people off the streets and stop them protesting. It shows what extremes the government is under orders by the US & NATO, will go to, to cover up the lies and propaganda.

There is further coverage of Saturdays Prague protest at Czech Protesters Rail Against Inflation, Sanctions and the Ukraine Proxy War https://scheerpost.com/2022/10/29/czech-protesters-rail-against-inflation-sanctions-and-the-ukraine-proxy-war/

The rally united tens of thousands, from the left and right, against their government’s support for sanctions on Russia and the war in Ukraine. ....

The rally saw tens of thousands of citizens condemning their government’s support for Kiev, including the provision of heavy weapons, as well as sanctions on Russia. A smaller, similar rally was held in Brno, the country’s second-largest city.

The demonstrators’ slogan was “Czech Republic First.” As with other recent protests throughout the continent, the left and right are uniting in their opposition to the West’s economic and proxy warfare against Russia.

One speaker said “Russia’s not our enemy, the government of warmongers is the enemy,” according to the AP.

In a previous protest in late September in Prague against the sanctions, an estimate 70,000 showed up See Prague Erupts in Protest Over Failed Sanctions Policies https://www.hungarianconservative.com/articles/current/prague-erupts-in-protest-over-the-failed-sanctions-policies/
