There is group of professional protesters in Prague, actually there are more but they are more or less the same. They go by the names: the Prague Maidan, Kaputin, the Pulse of Europe. The Prague Maidan appeared in the memorable year 2014, and it was actually founded by a Czech, because the Ukrainians (the second largest minority after the Roma) don’t give a hoot. They are a funny lot, and I wanted to share some photos I have collected.
I began calling them “The Exotibetants” because the liberation of Tibet is their cause célèbre.
Read the full story of the controversy in my previous post. Recently, the Prague 6 town hall decided on the removal of the statue and its placement in a museum. I am not certain whether the protester is there still, or if this wasn’t just a posing for a photo shoot.
