|"Show me your friends": Andrzej Duda greets the head
of Ukraine's pro-fascist government, Petro Poroshenko.
The right-wing, pro-capitalist government of Poland adds another episode in the series of it's anti-communist paranoia. After the continuous persecutions against communists in the country, after the decision to re-write history by destroying 500 Soviet-era monuments, the government of Andrzej Duda signed a law banning all references to communism! According to the law - signed on May 20th - local authorities will have 12 months to change any names linked to individuals, organisations, events or dates reflecting such political ideologies.
According to the AFP report from Warsaw: "The law specifies that any mention of the regime in place in Poland between 1944 and 1989, when the country was part of the Soviet bloc, would be a no-no. The governing Law and Justice (PiS) party, which came to power in November after eight years in opposition, is stridently anti-communist. The movement emerged out of the freedom-fighting Solidarity trade union that negotiated a peaceful end to communism in Poland in 1989".
The AFP refers to the CIA-backed "Solidarity" as a... "freedom-fighting trade union". We don't need to add anything about the known story of Solidarność and it's anti-people, counter-revolutionary role. What seems to be important is that Poland's ruling class, following the anti-communist EU legislation, has unleashed an unhistorical and dirty war against Communism and communists. What an ungrateful, full of shame, act against those who gave their lives for Polish people's prosperity and freedom.
