15.10.2016 – Warsaw – demonstration against racism and violence #BijąNaszych (supported by KOD)

October 15th is a Refugees Solidarity Day. Several cities across Poland organised various events to show their solidarity with the refugees and protest against the hate crimes towards foreigners. The main event took place in Warsaw, in front of the Palace of Culture – a demonstration in solidarity and protest against racism driven violence. “The 15th of October is an occasion to loudly state that there is no place for animosity and persecutions of people in need in Poland. That we want our country to actively partake in international refugee assistance. That we have the right to live in a country where everyone – regardless of their origin, race, faith, gender, sexual orientation, worldviews or financial situation – is treated with respect and feels safe.”
