Independent Voices about protest in Poland September 2013
Many of western journalists has no clue, what was about the protest in Poland! It was not against “pro market” reforms which government of Donald Tusk has no intent to do, nor has any idea how to do them.
The protest was about:
ˇ Scandalous neglecting of national interest of Poland;
ˇ Total incompetence in handling of Smolensk Tragedy
ˇ Lack of governance
ˇ S trait in face lies;
Corruption scandals and insolent cover up of the guilty ones by the government.
Deteriorating democracy and democratic values, lack of respect to the citizens supporting the opposition. Government use of justice system and police force to prosecute citizens opposing the ruling party and President;
Shutting down (in long run by limiting its audience) one of the few media left, that is not in bed with the government, which is TV Trwam.
In fact, that was the main reason, why this protest was organized, to defend TV Trwam, to whom the government controlled state media council, refused to issue a license for broadcasting through digital multiplexer. Of course that by itself, wouldn’t be enough to draw such crowd, if the government by its scandalous actions wasn’t causing so much grief in large part of society, or if it was doing good job governing Poland and its citizens were respected and happy. But it
is not. The only reason Poland is doing fairly OK economically, is because of the massive debt, that this government is running since it got to power in 2007. But that can not be done forever.
