The chinese president arrived with a surprise visit in Poland. No word of
it was known until it leaked this morning. The polish president arranged a
military parade for the occasion. The chinese delegation came with their
own agents who were busy putting red flags over the Falun Gong and Tibet
flags that demonstrators brought in protest. Some of the activists got into
fights with chinese security guards. The polish police didn't intervene.
After Warsaw's appearance of the Chinese delegation took us for surprise, we
managed to inform FA Krakow that they would be in the city the next day.
Activists managed to find out where the delegation would eat out and
prepared a banner and a few people to welcome them. :-)

The Chinese secret police apparently feel just like at home, going after
protestors. After initial attempts to beat the small band of protestors
back failed, they managed to get some dogs who were more effective in doing
the job.

The plan of the visit was kept in secret. But we have
our contacts ;-) People in town were informed about the visit the same day.
Police an hour before the dinner just closed part of a main market. Then
cowboys form Government Protection Biuro arrived with president of Poland
(for sure they are paid for drinking cola and fanta at public!!!). We almost
made falstart - one of anarchist started to shout "fuck off" to Kwasniewski,
we of course also wanted, but this day the object was different ;-)

When chinese delegation arrived we put out our banner "Chinese criminals to
the tribunal!" and started shouting "Chinese criminals you will be punished
by The People" (it rhymes in polish:). Then we were atacked by police and
cowboys (twice because at first time they didn't manage :-), who snatch the
banner and started to push us away. I so chinese secret service guy who was
pointing at us and showing police who should they atack.

Anyway, in comments on "Gazeta Wyborcza" web-page somebody mentioned that
the route of the visit is likely the same as tatars (mongolians) had in XIII
century when they attacked and burned down Krakow ;-)
