At 12 noon, a huge march will begin at Plac Na Rozdrożu in Warsaw. Leaders of all opposition groups announced their participation in the march. Crowds of people in Warsaw. Many residents take the subway to march. The trains are already almost full.
The first participants of the march on June 4 from all over the country began to arrive in the capital. In mid-April, the date of the assembly was announced by the PO leader, Donald Tusk. The protesters will demonstrate against “expensiveness, theft and lies”.
The date of the event is not accidental, because Sunday marks the 34th anniversary of the first partially free parliamentary elections in Poland after World War II, in which Solidarity achieved success.
In addition to the politicians of the Civic Platform, participation in the march was announced by the leader of Poland 2050, Szymon Hołownia, and the head of the PSL, Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz.
The organizers of the march announce that it will start at 12 near Plac Na Rozdrożu, near the Chancellery of the Prime Minister. Then, the participants of the event will walk along Aleje Ujazdowskie towards Plac Trzech Krzyży, walk along Nowy Świat and Krakowskie Przedmieście to Plac Zamkowy under the Zygmunt column.
Initially, they wanted to protest against “expensiveness, theft and lies”. Everything indicates, however, that after President Andrzej Duda signs the law establishing a commission for examining Russian influence, the participants of the march will take up “banners” precisely on this topic.
Due to the president's decision, the leader of Poland 2050, Szymon Hołownia, and the head of PSL, Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, announced their participation in the march on Tuesday, who were initially skeptical about this idea.
- We want to be with those who want free elections - said Hołownia.
Spokesman of the KSP supercom. Sylwester Marczak pointed out that many traffic outages should be expected in connection with the Sunday march. — When moving around Warsaw, it is worth using public transport. More information can be found on the transport website, as well as on the website of the city office, where we will learn about specific traffic exclusions – he noted.
— Let us also remember that safety also depends on the participants of all events. If you see anything suspicious, report it to the police immediately.
He also noted that this is particularly important, because in our country there are alert levels ordered by the head of government – BRAVO, which concerns the threat of terrorism, and CHARLIE-CRP – cyberterrorism.
The PO leader said that the demonstration was a good time to manifest “not only your anger, but also your hope”. — When I look at this center of Warsaw, I haven't thought for a long time that the words “here is Poland” fit so well to the place and time. Yes, Poland is here – emphasized Donald Tusk.
- The first step to breaking free from slavery is being brave to be free. The first step to victory is to know yourself. We are here so that the whole of Poland, Europe and the world can see how strong we are, how many of us are ready to fight for democracy and a free Poland, like 30–40 years ago – pointed out the leader of the Civic Platform.
Donald Tusk assessed that “nothing can stop this wave.” — The giant has awakened. I am proud and happy that I can say today in Warsaw: “We will win!”.
In his speech, Rafał Trzaskowski emphasized that today's event is the beginning of the path to victory for the opposition parties in the upcoming elections. - I am absolutely convinced that we will all go the same way. The road to victory, he said.
Trzaskowski added that “we, the nation, have the right to clearly say what kind of Poland we want.” — We want a democratic, open and European Poland – he stressed.
The Mayor of Warsaw pointed out that the October parliamentary elections are, in his opinion, choices between true freedom and dictatorship. — Especially in times when the authorities are trying to destroy democracies. When the authorities try to politicize all independent institutions. When, in practice, it leads us out of the European Union, or situations on the total margin – he stressed.
- That's when we have to talk about freedom. Because the choices ahead of us are about freedom. About freedom from people who tell us how to live. Freedom from indoctrination in schools. Those who trample women's rights are attacking minorities. We've had enough! — said Rafał Trzaskowski.
At the end of the speech, the politician of the Civic Platform stated that the manifestation was a signal for the whole world. All of Europe is watching us. The whole world is looking at us, just like in 1980 and 1989. And I want to say one thing to the world: “Poland is not yet lost. Poland is not yet lost.” We will win, he concluded.
