Conservative group D.O.S.T. lashes out against Prague Pride


The conservative group D.O.S.T. has asked Prime Minister Petr Nečas to publicly support their protest action against Prague Pride, a week-long festival in support of gay and lesbian rights due to take place next week. The group says it has turned to Mr. Nečas as the leader of a party that has repeatedly advocated conservative and family values. It has also asked for support from Prague Mayor Bohuslav Svoboda, who rejected a similar appeal last year. The week of Prague Pride events includes debates, parties and exhibitions and will culminate with a march through the city centre on Saturday, August 18th.The group D.O.S.T. plans to stage its own march in support of traditional family values in the city centre.
