Alexandr Kliment (January 30, 1929 – March 22, 2017) was a Czech writer, poet and playwright. He was a signatory of Charter 77 in 1977.[1]

In 1967, Kliment participated in a congress of the writers' union, which included Václav Havel, Ivan Klíma, Ludvík Vaculík, and photographer Oldřich Škácha.[2] The writers' congress, which took place during a period of liberalism in Czechoslovakia, is considered to be a predecessor of the Prague Spring in 1968.[2] He later joined with Havel and other Czechoslovak dissidents to sign the Charter 77.[1]

Kliment died on March 21, 2017, at the age of 88.[1][3]
