Czech strike postponed, but very popular

Unions have postponed a nationwide 24-hour transport strike in protest against the government's reform plans until Thursday, June 16, the Czech News Agency (ČTK) reported. The strike was to have taken place today, but Prague Municipal Court banned the protest, ruling organizers had failed to give necessary advance warning of three working days. 
A snap poll for Czech Television found 58 percent of Czechs support the strike, and 40 percent even agree with threatened blockades of major highways.

At least the public transport unions here have courage to stand up for the rest of us. And Klaus's response:" Fire the workers". I support the strike. Instead we should fire all the corrupt politicians who continue to steal public money and laugh about it all the way to the bank
