Elżbieta Podleśna from the group of 14 women from Most, explained on TVN24 why the event “Niepodległa for all”, which was supposed to take place on Thursday in Warsaw, would not take place. – We have decided to abandon it under the pressure of the state authorities, which gave Robert Bąkiewicz’s march the character of an event of state importance – she said. She added that this shows how the authorities understand the celebration of independence. In her opinion, this is “an independence that excludes a minority that fumbles, exploits national pride by falsifying history.”

The group of 14 Women from the Bridge canceled the “Niepodległa dla życia” event scheduled for Thursday in the center of the capital. The organizers decided to take this step, even though their congregation was legally registered by the capital city hall. At the conference on Wednesday, they explained that due to the fact that the Independence March, organized by national circles, had acquired the status of a state celebration, they would not be able to ensure security during it.

– We will not march, because we are giving way to the law of the stronger, not to the law, which is enshrined in the codes and which says that the only legal assembly on the route from what we call Rondo Women’s Rights (Rondo Dmowskiego in the center of Warsaw – ed. ) to the grounds of the National Stadium, there is a gathering of 14 women from the Bridge – she said. – We decided to resign from carrying it out under pressure from the state authorities, which gave Robert Bąkiewicz’s march the character of an event of state importance – she added. She added that “thereby the state takes responsibility” for situations that may happen during the Independence March. – They will belong to the state authorities, as PiS understands the celebration of independence – said Podleśna.

– It is an independence that excludes a minority that fumbles, exploits national pride, falsifying a history that excludes successive historians from the Institute of National Remembrance, that twists the facts, that drives people on the border to death due to hypothermia, (…), we decided get off the street, leave it to the nationalists and neo-fascists – she said.
