Anti-gay extremists marched through the streets of Warsaw, Poland during this years Independence March filled with hate and bent on destruction in which groups that included the neo-Nazi group All-Polish Youth, which calls for a Catholic theocracy in Poland and which has been condemned by Amnesty International as an anti-gay hate group. torched a rainbow installation standing for diversity in Warsaw’s main square.
Warsaw’s main boulevard, Marszalkowska, and neighbouring areas turned into a war zone on the Independence Day March on November 11. Row after row of mostly male youth marched along the boulevard spilling into sidewalks and side streets.They carried flags with Celtic crosses (swastikas) and white power fists, chanted slogans with visceral force and filled the centre of the city with fire-cracker smoke. The parade, with the number of protesters set at around 15,000, was organised by two of the most prominent far-right organisations in the country, the All-Polish Youth and the National-Radical Camp. Few passers-by dared to stick around and watch the spectacle. Within one hour of the start of the demonstration, participants had attacked two squats in the centre of Warsaw (Syrena and Przychodnia) and burnt down a rainbow installation in Plac Zbawicela, an artistic installation standing for diversity.
Being of Polish heritage I am shocked and disgusted at the fact that neo-mazi’s groups actually are allowed to exist in Poland at all let alone march through the streets openly unchallenged.
The Nazis believed all Slavs would be the slave race, there to serve the Aryans. Hundreds of thousands of Poles were were arrested and slaughtered – the intelligentsia, the disabled, the gays, the Jews and more
Looking at these fascists in Warsaw, makes me sick to my stomach. The horror and lessons of WWII have been entirely forgotten.
“Today Christians … stand at the head of
[this country]… I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to
destroy Christianity .. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian
spirit … We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in
literature, in the theater, and in the press – in short, we want to burn out
the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a
result of liberal excess during the past … (few) years.”
