The reports in the press of the IS tendency refer to the march from
Florenc Bus Station to Namesti Miru in the morning, the only protest
during the morning AFAIK despite plans for widespread disruption. At
that time large numbers of people from Germany, Greece and elsewhere
were still stuck at the border. From reports I have personally heard we
mobilised in total between 3,000 and 3,500 people.

As for the other allegations in the report I can't comment.
