Never Again: Fighting the Polish Far-Right *PARTNER CONTENT*

Польша, Warsaw
сент. 30, 2019 в 03:42 GMT +00:00 · Опубликовано

Poland today is often associated with far-right nationalism, a trend that has swept across Europe in recent years. Since winning the election in 2015, the Law & Justice Party has targeted immigrants, women and the LGBT community while emboldening the far-right.

Dan Glass, whose Jewish-Polish grandmother lived in hiding in Warsaw during the Second World War, went on a journey to discover her story of survival, and to learn about how it connects with today's struggles. He met activists who are fighting back against both the government and the far-right, and continuing his family’s tradition of resistance.

At the first ever LGBT Pride march in Warsaw, he confronted Pawel Kaminski, a Law & Justice Party member who said: “I’m sure we tolerate people much more than any country in Europe,” despite hundreds of counter-protesters heckling the marchers.

An activist from the LGBT group Stonewall, Agata Sawinski, countered this by pointing out that, “In Poland there is no hate crime considering homophobia” and explaining how the organization has come under attack in recent years.

Meanwhile, women’s rights activist Klementyna Suchanow discussed the importance of the successful abortion rights protests of 2016, pointing out that, “It was important for the society, because it was the first time that somebody won with the ruling party”, showing that the power of activism can often defeat the policies put forward by the government.
