The Faith and Tradition Association founded by Mariusz Sarol – Robert Bąkiewicz’s “right hand” – received PLN 430,000 in subsidies from the government fund. This association was established two months before the start of the competition. With the money received, they organized 10 screenings of patriotic films, which were watched by a “modest audience”, “Rzeczpospolita” reported. This year, Faith and Tradition is applying for another, higher grant.

“Rzeczpospolita” wrote on Monday about the association Faith and Tradition, which operates in Zaborówek in Mazovia. It was founded by Mariusz Sarol, who – according to the newspaper – “is considered Robert Bąkiewicz’s right hand in Pruszków near Warsaw”.

The daily reports that the organization was founded last year two months before the competition of the state Patriotic Fund. She took part in this competition and received PLN 430,000, which was allocated to organizing screenings of patriotic animated films. There were 10 of them in three months, with – as “Rzeczpospolita” writes – “a modest audience”. According to the daily, the page of the “open-air cinema” on Facebook is followed by 35 users.

Faith and Tradition is applying for another subsidy – this time a bigger one, by PLN 600,000. He applies for this to the National Institute of Freedom, which is managed by the Deputy Prime Minister Piotr Glinskias in the case of the Patriotic Fund. The money is to be used for “institutional and missionary development”. The application received a positive opinion.

They blamed the cooperative for removing the flag, they march against abortion

Mariusz Sarol wrote in a letter to “Rzeczpospolita” that the association he founded “previously acted as an informal group, undertaking a number of activities in the field of patriotic and national attitudes.” He calculated that his organization “promoted the ‘white and red’ project in Pruszków and Brwinów”, consisting in hanging flags and masts financed by the government, and “issued an appeal to the authorities of one of the Pruszków housing cooperatives when it removed the mast with the Polish flag and the symbol Fighting Poland. According to the newspaper, Sarol also organizes the Rosary March of Life against abortion in Pruszków.

The founder of the foundation did not answer the questions of “Rzeczpospolita” about his relationship with Robert Bąkiewicz. However, the daily wrote that Sarol, before last year’s Independence March, appeared at the conference alongside Bąkiewicz and Bartosz Karamuz – the head of the National Guard.

Subsidies for Bąkiewicz

Public money flows in a wide stream to the organization of Robert Bąkiewicz. Related organizations: the Independence March Association, the National Guard Association and the Independence March Rota Association received a total of almost PLN 4 million from the budget until the end of 2021. The money was donated by the Institute of National Thought Heritage (PLN 3 million) and the National Freedom Institute (PLN 880,000).

In 2022, the National Guard and March of Independence associations were awarded another 850 thousand PLN as part of the project “Freedom in Polish – edition 2022”.
