The reason for this is because of the police treatment of Arabs and other
non-white people (for example Pakistanis) in the aftermath of the Madrid
bombings. A few days ago the headlines in Warsaw were about how the police
caught 4 people (including 2 Pakistanis and a Ukrainian) who were planning a
terrorist attack in Warsaw. The reason for their suspicions: they had maps
with things (like railway stations, embassies and synagogues) circled on them.
In the papers yesterday, (of course NOT on page one), it was revealed that
they were all released. The Pakistanis were refugees and the Ukrainian a
tourist (or perhaps worker). It turned out that, for example, the place
marked on the map that police claimed was the Czech Embassy was actually the
Border Guards (which is located next to it and where they apparently had
some legitimate business related to their status) and the places they
thought indicated a synagogue actually was a refugee organization (also,
located next to it). Why a foreigner might designate the train station on a
map also is not hard to guess.

In the mean time, people are living in fear. We visited an Arab friend
yesterday who cancels work and classes (he's a medical student) because he's
afraid to walk downtown. Apparently the police ransacked his place and are
going around to the places of non-whites with such searches. So we want to
make an anti-racist action to show that we do not approve of this situation
at all.
