(en) Poland, wave of student* actions

Date Sun, 14 May 2006 10:43:10 +0300

Today, people from the Students' Initiative* held protests around Poland
against the new Minister of Education, Roman Giertych. Giertych is the
extreme-right leader of the League of Polish families, and the youth
organization he reactivated (which had a history before the communist days
of conducting progroms) is best known for attacking gay parades and the like.
In Warsaw there was a very lively demo with many slogans against religion in
schools, for libertarian education and against the government. The
demonstration was joined by some people and many people sitting in cafes
along the route were applauding. About 1000 people took part.
Other demos were held in Szczecin, Krakow, Katowice, Czestochowa, Wroclaw
and Rzesów. We are just getting in reports but we are told they went without
incident, gathered a couple of hundred people each and had wide public
support from pedestrians and others on the street.

The actions will repeat next week and hopefully be even bigger. See CIA
(Anarchist Information Center) news for galleries.

* SI was started by some activists of the FA (Federation Anarchist)
but now many of the groups include a wider range of people.
