Law and Justice will not take part in the Independence March organized by nationalists. Jarosław Kaczyński and his supporters have a different plan for celebrating Independence Day.
On Saturday, November 11, a demonstration organized by the Independence March association will once again take place on the streets of Warsaw. This year’s nationalist demonstration is organized under the slogan “Poland is not yet lost.”
– We want to remind you about important issues. There is a war on our eastern border, and we have the impression that politicians have forgotten about this fact. We must remember to arouse national pride and a sense of belonging to the Polish nation. Hence the slogan that everyone should be able to sign – explained the new head of the MN association, Bartosz Malewski, who replaced Robert Bąkiewicz.
This is how PiS will celebrate on November 11
Law and Justice politicians will not officially take part in the Independence March. However, the party has a different idea on how to celebrate Independence Day. The celebration of this extremely important anniversary for Polish history will be combined with the celebrations of the next Smolensk month. Why was November 10 chosen? PiS politicians explain that it was on this day in 1918 that Józef Piłsudski came to Warsaw from Berlin.
The schedule published by PiS politicians shows that the celebrations will begin on Friday, November 10, at 8 a.m. with a mass for the victims of the Smolensk disaster in the seminary church of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Krakowskie Przedmieście. The next service will be held at 7 p.m. in the Cathedral of John the Baptist in the Old Town.
After the Holy Mass, PiS politicians and their supporters are to go on a March of Remembrance. The demonstration is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m. Half an hour later, the march participants are to reach Piłsudski Square, where Jarosław Kaczyński is to deliver a commemorative speech.
