K-S1 at a demonstration
Lens: SMC 50-200m Camera: K-S1 Photo Location: Prague, Czech republic. ISO: 400

Today we celebrate 30 years since the Velvet revolution when the socialistic regime here in the Czech republic, central Europe fell and we became a part of the democratic world.
Unfortunately, some "oligarchs" got to power - threatening the freedom and democracy - and the yesterday's 100% peaceful protest was aimed against them.
Here's a few documentary pictures from the demonstration (almost 300,000 people present are estimated).


The demonstration took place on Letná, where the most massive meetings 30 years ago took place.



Those red undies symbolise our president's orientation towards Russia and China.



The original slogan 30 years ago was "Truth and love must prevail over lies and hatred". Now our prime minister (left) symbolises those lies and the president the hatred.




Singing the anthem at the end of the meeting.

The first photo is the best at telling the story in a way people will understand - it shows so many people.
