Thousands attend anti-government, pro-Europe march in Poland
Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in Warsaw Saturday to protest against “anti-democratic” and “harmful” policies of Poland’s conservative government. Authorities estimated that 240,000 people took part in the demonstration which was held under the slogan: “We are and will remain in Europe.”
The march was organised by the opposition Civic Platform party and a movement called the Committee for the Defense of Democracy, with support from other opposition parties.
At the same time, a counter-protest was held by nationalists who oppose the EU’s influence in Poland. Supporters of the ruling Law and Justice party object to the recent anti-government protests and accuse the opposition of trying to destabilize Poland.
The two demonstrations highlight the deep divide in Polish society between those who want deeper integration with Europe and those who feel that EU membership has eroded national sovereignty.
