Politicians and Jewish communities expressed outrage on Monday after protesters at a demonstration against the coronavirus vaccine in Prague wore the Star of David.
Several protesters at a demonstration on Friday at Wenceslas Square wore the Star of David, bearing the word "unvaccinated."
Politicians also criticized the demonstrators.
"All citizens have the right to protest – but this form of protest is tasteless and deeply offensive," Petr Fiala of the opposition Civic Democratic Party (ODS) wrote on Twitter.
