70,000 protesters swarm Prague in protest of energy crisis: "Europe on the brink"

• by Ethan Huff

The mob demanded that the ruling coalition take a neutral stance on the war in Ukraine to ensure that energy continues to flow throughout the winter as opposed to running dry like it already is in Germany, France and elsewhere in Western Europe.

Protesters want political detachment from the European Union (EU) and its economic aggression against Russia, which is only harming the people of the countries doing the aggressing. (Related: Dutch farmers are protesting their government for trying to phase out livestock and agriculture to fight "climate change".)

"The aim of our demonstration is to demand change, mainly in solving the issue of energy prices, especially electricity and gas, which will destroy our economy this autumn," said event organizer Jiri Havel to local news outlet iDNES.
