Ex-president Havel supports Greens in video-clip

Ex-president Vaclav Havel has shot a video-clip in support of the Green Party. In it Mr. Havel criticizes what he calls money- driven city planning which he says is changing the face of Prague without any consideration for the needs of future generations. He says he is happy to see that at least one party in the Czech Republic feels as strongly about the problem as he does. Prague councillors have frequently come under fire from the Greens for being unsympathetic to the environment and pandering to the demands of lobbyists. The popular ex-president is making no secret of the fact that he intends to vote for the Greens in May’s general elections.
