A Violent Polish Independence Day Parade In Warsaw

This year the right-wing groups, left-wing radicals and government supporters held their own Polish Independence Day parades in Warsaw to push for their visions of what sort of country Poland should be.

However, the parade turned violent when the riot police confronted right-wing nationalists.

The right wing groups were not happy because they feel the government has liberal values imported from Europe that are ruining Poland’s Catholic traditions.

They are unhappy with issues like gay rights or LGBT rights.

A Reuters correspondent saw policemen beating protesters with truncheons, forcing the rioters to disperse.

Police spokesman Mariusz Sokolowski said, “The police used rubber bullets, pepper spray, stun grenades and truncheons.”

Poland was independent on November 11, 1918.

Anyway I wonder why did some people waved Ukraine flags during the Polish Independence Day celebration as in the first picture?

Two trains collided head-on in southern Poland late Saturday.

A train traveling from Przemysl to Warsaw collided with another train traveling from Warsaw to Krakow which was actually traveling on the wrong track.

So, both trains ran on the same track and collided near the town of Szczekociny, just north of Krakow.

There were some foreigners on the train including Ukraine, Spain, U.S. and France citizens.

16 people were killed including a U.S. lady and 58 others were injured in the disaster.

This is Poland’s worst train disaster in more than 20 years.

They are still investigating the cause of the accident.
