Video: Freeze against star wars in the Czech Republic

Seventy percent of the people are against the building of a US radar base as part of the Missile Defense project, known in Europe as the Space Shield.

In May 2008, two young humanists in Prague went on hunger strike to protest against the undemocratic decisions taken by the Czech Government, unleashing a wave of support and solidarity across the world. Since then, a chain hunger strike has continued: every day a public personality makes a day of fast. Scientists, academics, actors and actresses, directors, sportsmen and women, members of parliament from different political sides including the Vice-president of the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Parliament have taken part.
A broad coalition of Mayors against the radar has been formed and 13 of the 14 regional Presidents are supporting the protest and almost half of the MPs are against the building of the military base.
