In Poland, the nurses have been on strike, demanding higher wages. (Nurses,
like teachers and others who work with people receive outrageously low
They have occupied the Ministry of Health and held many demonstrations and
blockades yesterday. They blocked the borders with Germany and Belarus,
blocking the railway on the Warsaw-Berlin line.

Anarchists went by to lend support to the nurses, who, despite the freezing
cold, kept a very nice, lively demonstration. Later we were invited to the
nurses' HQ where we were asked for ideas and to continue support for them
nationally on a greater scale.

One anarchist is a nurse and he says that it's not a very radically-minded
atmosphere among them, but we hope that a few people will like our ideas
and, of course, it's good that people don't think we're provocatuers and
that our participation might help. It turned out that the people we met with
had been following the anarchists' actions in the press and liked them.

BTW, one funny thing is that a lot of nurses are using the black flag in
their protests. They're obviously using it for different reasons, but it
looks nice.
