Civic group Žít Brno announce plans to stand in local elections

The civic group Žít Brno have announced plans to stand in local elections in the Moravian capital in March. The activists gained a national profile after launching a website parodying Brno City Hall. A leading member, Matěj Hollan, told journalists on Tuesday that they were standing in response to the recent removal of their Facebook page on the orders of Mayor Roman Onderka, a frequent target of their criticism. Mr. Hollan said Žít Brno would campaign under the slogan “It can’t be done any worse”.
