CZECH ORGANIZATION LAUNCHES ANTIRACIAL CAMPAIGN.
 
A media campaign against racial prejudice and xenophobia was launched
on 9 August by the Czech League of Ethnic Minorities, CTK reported.
The campaign will last two months and aims at reaching people through
television and radio spots, as well as leaflets. The campaign's motto
is: "We live together with you here. Why do you mind?" The spots
feature a black man proposing marriage to a Czech girl, a Romany woman
who donates blood to save another woman's life, and a Vietnamese who
moves next door to a Czech. Meanwhile, a spokesman for the British
Embassy in Prague on 9 August said that due to a "translation mistake"
the public had been misled to believe screening at Prague's airport by
British immigration authorities had ended on the morning of 9 August,
while in fact it ended only at midnight that day. MS
