Dear Jan Tamas
Dear Jan Bednar

Please know that Americans Against the War - France totally supports your efforts to stop deployment of a U.S.A. missile defense radar site in the Czech Republic.

Prague, May 7, 2008
Leader of the Czech movement against the planned US military base Jan Tamas will start hunger strike on Tuesday, May 13. He will be joined by Jan Bednar, activist in the movement.

"We have tried almost everything, but our government has failed to listen to us. They continue to ignore the fact that more than two thirds of Czechs oppose this plan," said Jan Tamas in reference to the March 2008 polls showing 67% of Czech disagree with the planned US deployment of a missile defense radar site in the Czech Republic. "We are calling on our friends from abroad to support us in our struggle as this is not only a local issue, but it is a regional issue." Currently people in 14 cities across Europe expressed their support to the hunger strike and will join the two Czechs by going on solidarity hunger strikes in their cities. These include Paris, Turin, Athens, Rome, Budapest and others.

Jan Tamas and Jan Bednar will be staying in a publicly accessible place in Prague during the hunger strike, so that people can come and support them. There will be a press conference in English language during the first day of the hunger strike (May 13) at 12 o'clock (noon). The address is Bìlehradská 12/98, Prague 2 (near Metro stations I.P.Pavlova or Namesti Miru). Information about the hunger strike will be published at the website www.nonviolence. cz. Daily videos will be posted on the website from Prague and possibly from other European cities where solidarity hunger strikes and other activities will take place starting Tuesday.
