On Sunday, the nationalists disrupted the pro-EU demonstration at Castle Square in Warsaw, including the speech of Wanda Traczyk-Stawska, a veteran of the Warsaw Uprising. – I was on the verge of a collision of two realities. It was quite a difficult experience – Katarzyna Grochola commented on these events in “Fakty po Faktach”.
On Sunday at Castle Square in Warsaw, but also in many other cities in Poland and abroad, pro-EU demonstrations took place. 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 writer Katarzyna Grochola, who spoke during the Sunday demonstration at Castle Square, said on Monday in “Faktach po Faktach” that “in front of her was a crowd of 100,000 people who believed in good, law, justice and that we would not be moved out of Europe. “. She added that “we had a terrible barking dog in the back.” – Terrible words were spoken there, the national anthem was interrupted, the statements of the insurgents (of the Warsaw uprising – ed) were interrupted. ”
– I was on the verge of a collision of two realities. It was quite a difficult experience – said Grochola.
She referred to the behavior of a group of several dozen nationalists led by Robert Bąkiewicz. They disrupted the speeches at the pro-EU demonstration, including when she was speaking Wanda Traczyk-Stawska, a veteran of the Warsaw Uprising. The uprising said from the stage to the counter-demonstrators: – Be silent, stupid man, be silent, silent, you are finished. I remember how the blood was pouring, my colleagues died. That is why I am here to cry out on their behalf.
When asked what she and the people around her then felt, she replied that she was “absolutely powerless”. – Those countries in the back were cordoned off by the police, there were a handful of them. They use the symbols of Fighting Poland and refer to the Warsaw Uprising – said the writer. She noticed that one of the participants of the Warsaw Uprising had an armband with insurgent blood on her arm.
“It’s terrible not to be able to show some truth that is happening before our eyes,” said Grochola.
