(en) ozzip pl: Warsaw: memory Workers Brigade of Defence Warsaw [machine translation]

Date Fri, 16 Sep 2016 10:20:49 +0300

On Tuesday, September 6, at 18:00, the Warsaw Commission Environmental OZZ IP organized a demonstration under the slogan "No more war, no more nationalism," devoted to commemorating activists and union activists and members and members of the pre-war left-wing organizations, who in 1939 defended Warsaw against the aggression of the third Reich. Below we present the relationship of the organizers and the organizers of the action. ---- "In the first days of September at the initiative of the Polish Socialist Party was formed volunteer Workers Brigade of the Defence of Warsaw, which focused approx. 6 thousand people from various leftist and trade union circles. Today, it is a forgotten episode in the history of both the left and the September events. We want this anniversary has again become an occasion to recall the crimes of Nazism, racism, extermination, total war "

The event was not only a historical character. In the context of the tragic anniversary of the outbreak of World War II we wanted to draw attention to the alarming tendency in Poland and Europe: the rapid growth of nationalist tendencies and increasingly frequent in the media and political salons rhetoric of war.

"Frightening war fueling nationalism and strengthens the divisions. The atmosphere of fear spreads violence, including the daily, among ordinary people. We want to remind that it is capitalism, with its selfishness, focus on profit, the necessity of expansion - causes of war. "Said Catherine Rakowska, representative of the Workers' Initiative.

Spoke as a representative of the party together - Julia Zimmermann:" To fight became not devotees of weapons and the boys playing in war, but ordinary citizens of Warsaw, of different religions and nationalities, workers, intellectuals, union activists and members of the PPS. These are the people beguile today of faith and worship, the authorities announce triumphantly decommunization streets, which in practice will lead to removal from the social memory of people left their vision and Polish. This memory is especially important now, when the authorities once again allows the brown tide to flood our streets. "

Antoni Wiesztort of collective siren reminded that World War II was not so much the descent of the devil on earth, as the culmination of a social crisis. "In the pre-war Warsaw was among dramatic hunger housing. When 97% of the city was in private hands, the smallest cubicle cost a fortune, and peace przypadaly 3-4 people. The Left and the anarchists fought with exploitation based on private property, nationalists and preached slogan "Jews to Madagascar." "Solutions" nationalists eventually played in the life of Hitler, leaving Warsaw destroyed in 87%. Holy rebuilt social cost, and today the re-privatization of public assets, nationalists silent about enrichment by descendants of blackmailers and make it difficult to organize themselves anarchists and tenants against private profits, bredzac the return of the Jews, "komuchach" and the need for armaments. If we want to live in houses, not in the barracks or coffins, we have to spend to fight przepasciom society. "

spoke as a representative of the Workers' Democracy.

Between the speeches, participants chanted "no more war and nationalism" and "class war is not national."

at the rally also quoted leftist poetry connected with the aggression of the third Reich in Poland m.in fragment poem by Teofil Glowacki: "But our work thing / She needed to grab the rifle / Warsaw showed red / brown drabom hard fist ". In contrast, present with us Warsaw Choir revolutionary "Warszawianka" performed the songs pre-war workers, "Red Flag" and "Warszawianka"

There were over 60 people. We hung black-and-red flags Workers' Initiative and the red flags of the anti-fascist symbol - three transverse shots.

We placed flowers under the plaque commemorating the Workers Brigade of the Defence of Warsaw. We announced that for the civil defense of the city and the victims of war and nationalism will remind 6 September every year.
