On 21st May 2011 Czech trade unions organised a demonstration against the reforms of health care, taxation, pension and social systems proposed by the Czech Government. The demonstration was supported also by several civil society organisations and associations. On the Wenceslas square, a memorial place in the centre of the City of Prague, around 48 000 people assembled. Among many speakers were also the ETUC Deputy General Secretary and Vice President of the Confederation of Trade Unions of the Slovak Republic. We also thank for messages of solidarity and support we received from the ICTU and other trade union colleagues from abroad.
At the end of the demonstration the participants adopted the "Declaration of participants of the Demonstration "Against Treacherous Reforms".
