It seems Vaclav Klaus has now signed the treaty. A sad day.
Our fight to support Vaclav Klaus is over. Now our fight to leave the EU begins.
Join the group: Support democracy and independence; leave EU and join EFTA!
Yesterday I met with representatives of Vaclav Klaus office in Prague.
I handed over the petition to Mr Jakl, Vaclav Klaus right hand man.

We are trying to arrange a meeting with the Office of the President of the Czech Republic. Most likely, the petition will be handed over on Friday. Please, keep on working, contact your friends and get as many signatures as you can.
We thank you for your support! Every signature counts!
The government of Slovak Republic has woken up! After the Czech President Klaus had opened the question of so-called “Beneš decrees”, Rober Fico, the head of the Slovakian governmen reacted, he would demand the same opt-out, if Klaus was successful.
According to Czech Newspaper “Hospodářské Noviny” he said: “We have now only two options. Either we get the same warranties, or we will block the Czech opt-out.” President Klaus of Czech Republic previously announced, that he would no way sign the treaty without the warranties he demands.
After the World War II, the Czech Republic and Slovakia were established as a one united country, the Czechoslovakia. Although they separated 16 years ago, the “Beneš decrees” concern both the countries.

According to the recent survey by agency “Median”, about 65% of Czech Citizens support their president in his resistance against the Lisbon Treaty.
The tactic of EU-elites tumbles down. They wanted to keep him isolated, alone and with no support, awaiting his resignation. However, this is obviously not going to happen, according to the huge amount of international support we all showed.
Mr. Klaus is being told to resign from his office, if he does not sign the treaty. Apparently, this is not the will of 74% of the Czech population.

The article is translated with Google Translate here:
Secretary of the Swedish right-wing Swedish Democrats Kent Ekeroth started a campaign to promote the Czech head of state. To this end, based on-line petition. “I když Irové v opakovaném referendu řekli smlouvě ano, stále existuje malá naděje, že by mohla být zastavena. Tou nadějí jste vy, Václav Klaus, český prezident,” píší Švédští demokraté. “Even though Irishmen in a repeated referendum said the contract so there is still little chance that it could be stopped. Tou hope you, Václav Klaus, Czech president,” writes Swedish Democrats. -Petition today has over twelve thousand signatures from all over Europe. At the same time was the foreign group that supports the Czech president on Facebook.
