on social media

Numerous efforts to rename places to honor the former Czech president who helped bring down communism in his homeland have provoked a Facebook initiative designed to last generations: It demands that all the country’s future presidents bear Havel’s name.

Ridiculing the wave of renaming, the initiative calls on Parliament to adopt such a law. It also wants current President Vaclav Klaus, the late Havel’s political archrival, to "immediately" take Havel’s name.

"Something majestic has to bear the name of Vaclav Havel, something that will forever and ever exist beyond our mere mortal lives and that is the presidential office!," says the initiative, which has been joined by almost 6,000 people.
