Anti-government protests continued in Prague’s Wenceslas Square on Friday evening. Roughly a thousand demonstrators gathered on the square to demand the resignation of the current government coalition and president Václav Klaus. Demonstrators signed a petition and listened to live renditions of covers of songs by Czech protest singer Karel Krýl. The protests, organized by a citizens' initiative, started on Thursday, when thousands of people gathered in Prague and other cities across the country.
