Protesting people with disabilities and their carers will leave the Sejm on Friday, informed Iwona Hartwich, a member of the Civic Coalition. “In order to continue operating, we must be healthy, sometimes you have to take one step back to take two steps forward,” she wrote on social media. – Our parents feel worse. Yesterday there was an ambulance – explained Andrzej Sucholewski, one of the protesters. He added that the protest “will only be suspended”.

Guardians of adults with disabilities and their charges have been protesting in the Sejm since March 6. They submitted a civic draft law on the social pension, which provides for the payment of such a pension in the amount of the lowest national salary, i.e. PLN 3,490. The social pension is indexed annually and from 1 March this year it increased to PLN 1,588.44 gross.

Iwona Hartwich, an MP from the Civic Coalition, who is also the mother of one of the protesters, announced on Thursday that the protesters would leave the Sejm building on Friday. “Tomorrow we leave the Sejm! To continue working, we must be healthy, sometimes you have to take one step back to take two steps forward,” she wrote on social media.
