Workers' Party (Czech: Dělnická strana) was a Czech far-right, extremist and neo-nazi[citation needed] party in the Czech Republic. The party was founded by Tomáš Vandas. In 2010 the party was banned, making it the first instance of banning a party for its ideology in the modern history of the Czech Republic.[2] The party was transformed into a "Party of Citizens of the Czech Republic"[3], later renamed to Workers' Party of Social Justice.
