March 5th thousands of Czech citizens protested on the Venceslas square. Zdenek Ondracek - an infamous former communist police officer who had brutally beaten students during the Velvet revolution in 1989 was ellected to a top position in Czech security forces.

Three days later Ondracek failed to withstand the public pressure and resigned.

The shot is taken from the same spot where Josef Koudelka took his famous picture of Soviet occupation armies in 1968.
