Václav Havel reiterates support for Czech Green Party
May 29, 2009 in International Greens
As reported earlier here at Green Party Watch, former Czech President and leader of the Velvet Revolution that ended communist domination of the Czechoslovakian government twenty years ago has thrown his support behind that nation’s Green Party. Their website is in Czech.
Now the poet and non-violent political leader has reiterated his support for his nation’s Green Party in an email exchange with The Prague Post, that nation’s English language newspaper. In an email to the paper, Havel writes “Under the leadership of Martin Bursík, this party was able to achieve a number of productive changes to the government, even more than their supporters could have hoped for.”
Havel is encouraging Green Party votes in the upcoming European Parliment vote June 5th and 6th.
