Czechs commemorated the occupation of Czechoslovakia by Warsaw Pact troops in 1968 and victims of the August 1969 demonstrations across the country today.


The group, Million Moments for Democracy, held an anti-Babis march through Prague. Organizers estimate that over 10,000 people participated in the event.  In addition to the march, the group organized events in 93 cities today.


The names of victims of the communist occupation and suppression were read aloud in Wenceslas Square. Demonstrators placed a coffin in front of KSCM headquarters with the names of those killed in the 1969 protests.
