These days you can admire this installation :) <3 #warsaw #poland
Right-wing #hooligans in #Poland attacked a black man in a bar with an #axe. Yes, with a fucking axe. And still I can read comments from liberal/moderate people saying violence is "always wrong" and that one should not advocate #killing #nazis. I wish they someday get up close and personal with a bunch of nazi dickheads... I'll get there with a big bucket of popcorn to better enjoy the scene...
I wonder why #bridge was so insanely popular in #Poland before 1989. Maybe like #chess in the #SovietUnion. My mother theorized that popularity of chess was a result of a lack of a proper business environment in a communist state. "Kasparov could have become a CEO of a large enterprise in the west", she was saying.

#Poland's president Duda will veto the anti-democratic threat to the separation of powers between politics and justice system. That is a big relief for me as a European, and for tens of thousands of people on the streets of Poland. The EU should not allow the build-up of authoritarian structure within its community.
#Poland's pres Duda vetoes 2 bills undermining judiciary independence. PM Szydlo calls his action "incomprehensible" https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/in-surprise-move-polands-president-will-veto-much-of-judicial-overhaul/2017/07/24/36532068-7049-11e7-803f-a6c989606ac7_story.html

Despite mass protests across the country, and #EU threat to revoke voting rights, #Poland pushing forward on bringing the judiciary to heel https://www.reuters.com/article/us-poland-politics-judiciary-idUSKBN1A60T3
@b9AcE it's all up to the president now. But given his track record (he's been dubbed "the signer" by people as he never vetoes anything) I'm afraid #Poland is in for some tough times. My hope is for a notion-wide strike that will bring the country to a halt, but the #Solidarnosc days are long gone and I'm not sure the people are motivated enough...
#EU threatens to suspend #Poland's voting rights if it goes forward w/ placing Courts under control of Executive Branch http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/07/19/538156698/in-poland-effort-to-take-control-of-the-courts-inspires-protests Significant public protests over proposed legislation
