Tomorrow, November 11, in Warsaw will be a March of right-wing organizations and activists, dedicated to the independence Day of Poland. This is one of the mass political actions of the far right wing in Europe, writes AP.
Every year in March involving tens of thousands of Polish activists. To them traditionally join the “white supporters of extremism” from Sweden, Hungary, Slovakia and other countries.
The slogan for this year’s event is “We want God.” These are the words of the old Polish religious song, which the President of the United States Donald trump quoted in July during a visit to Warsaw. Trump then praised Poland’s contribution to “save Western civilization”.
Polish sociologist Rafal Pankovski, head of the anti-extremist Association Never Again, says that, despite the appeal to God, the March should not be seen as inspired by religious beliefs. Extreme right-wing “neo-pagans” are planning to take part in the March along with Roman Catholic groups.
“We know that Donald trump is not the most religious person, and I think most of the organizers (March – ed.) is also not very religious. But they use Christianity as a kind of identity marker, which basically indicates opposition to Islam,” said Pankovski.
According to him, the March in Warsaw is so massive, that, perhaps, is the world’s largest share of “extremely right-wing extremists”.
Among the organizers this year: the national radical camp, National movement, sapolsky young people and radical groups – followers of anti-Semitic groups active before the Second world war.
In 2016 November 11 in Poland, the marchers burned the flag of Ukraine.
