In IUSTITIA and the Globe Bookstore invite you to join us in looking at hate crimes and violence in the Czech Republic. This event is commemorating the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on March 21st.

We will feature the documentary “Circle: A Portrait of a Demonstration” made by FAMU student Tereza Reichová, followed by an open dialogue on what discrimination, racism, and social exclusion mean for society as a whole and what you can do to help.

The discussion will be lead by a panel of Czech experts on the topic including Klára Kalibová, lawyer for In IUSTITIA, Richard Samko, journalist, and Václav Walach, political scientist from Masaryk University in Brno

We will also welcome input from the audience to get a global view on the fight against racism.

Demonstrations promoting hate are costly and often erupt in violence, endangering the entire community.

Violence against minorities undermines the respect and progress of democratic societies as a whole.

Most perpetrators of hate crimes have no connection to extremist groups.


On November 17th 2008 took place a demonstration of the Workers´ Party in the Northern Bohemian town of Litvinov. It was followed by a march of Autonomous Nationalist to the neighborhood of Janov, mainly inhabited by Romanies. This led to a battle with police and demonstrators, in what the media called „Battle of Janov“. This event was significant because of how it escalated and how many non previously affiliated locals joined the far right demonstration.
