- Club of Committed Non-Party Members
The Club of Committed Non-Party Members (in Czech Klub angažovaných nestraníků, KAN) is a tiny liberal party in the Czech Republic.
It was originally founded during the Prague Spring in 1968 by 144 leading Czechoslovak intellectuals and prominent social figures as an independent activist organisation in purpose to advocate a reform program. It committed itself to human rights and civil equality, political pluralism and the principles embodied in the UN Declaration on human rights. During its peak it claimed to have almost 15 000 members. The Soviet Army formally proscribed it officially in September 1968.
After the Velvet Revolution of 1989 KAN was reorganised in 1990 as a party, but it has not gained wide support in the elections and is not represented in the parliament.
