Czech Family Federation supported Family Day march in Prague
By FFWPU Czech, Martine Masner
On Saturday August 13th 2016, our members from CARP, UPF and FFWPU marched in support of the Family Day march that was organized by the Youth Christian democrat party and the Catholic Church.
This event was organized as a response to the weeklong gay pride event taking place in Prague. The slogan of our march was “We are also here!”, meaning that government seems to care little to support functioning families.
Almost 1000 people took part in the family march, which passed through the historic part of the city, over the Charles’s Bridge and ended at a prepared venue with refreshments, games for kids and a concert. The march was colorful and joyful, attracting the curiosity of the many tourists.
