Since 2015, we can see in the Czech Republic the increasing efforts of the state to combat grassroots civic activities, which are termed left-wing extremism or even terrorism by the Ministry of the Interior. Creating an enemy and spreading the fear became a tool to intensify the repression, strengthen the state power and defend the business-political establishment. Over 100 activists from various countries were detained at the 2017 Klimakemp.
