Huge crowds of protesters demand Czech PM step down

Huge crowds flood central Prague demanding Prime Minister Andrej Babis step down over allegations of graft in a protest that organizers and local media claim drew around 250,000 people, which would make it the largest since the fall of communism in 1989.

“Judging from the aerial photos, it looks like we’re about 250,000. We’ll see how many more people will still arrive,” says Mikulas Minar, head of Million Moments for Democracy, the NGO organizing the protest, as it got underway.
