Wygnański: it's worth defending, it's worth going to the polls

Jakub Wygnański from the “Shipyard” foundation pointed out that there are the last six days of the election campaign. – You have to speak almost in block letters, so I'll hit those tones – he said. – Let us be aware that there is a war going on across our border, and people are dying for it because they would like to have the right to join this community. They are ready to give everything, and we are tired of democratic fatigue. People who do not strive for freedom do not even deserve it, he said.

He encouraged people to participate in the European elections. – I have a quite firm opinion on this matter that we have to go. I'm especially talking to younger people, because if you don't go along, just like with Brexit, my generation will furnish your lives permanently, said Wygnański.

He emphasized that “Europe is a community and was created as a pacifist project, de facto after the war, as a coal and steel community, and at this moment it must defend itself as a group.”

He encouraged us to “appreciate how great value” it is European Union and “how well we all got it together to be here, relative to almost everyone else in the world.” – It's worth defending, it's worth going to the polls, it's worth electing people who will have something to say there and won't clown around – he argued.
