The participants of the Warsaw Uprising – Wanda Traczyk-Stawska and Anna Przedpełska – took the floor during the pro-EU demonstration at Castle Square in Warsaw. Similar demonstrations are held on Sundays in many cities in Poland and abroad. This is a reaction to Thursday’s judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal, which found that some provisions of EU law are inconsistent with the Polish constitution.
The full Constitutional Tribunal, chaired by President Julia Przyłębska, dealt on Thursday with the matter initiated by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki at the end of March, concerning the constitutionality of some of the provisions of the Treaty on European Union. On that day, the Constitutional Tribunal found in a judgment that some of the EU regulations asked by the head of government are inconsistent with the constitution.
In response to this decision, the acting chairman of the Civic Platform, Donald Tusk, on the same day initiated a demonstration at 6 PM on Sunday at Castle Square. He called for the participation of “all those who want to defend European Poland”.
