News call them protesters, but I call them patriotic and peaceful celebrant.
Polish Nation is celebrating their INDEPENDENCE DAY on 11 November 2015
A nationalist march is under-way in Warsaw to commemorate Poland’s Independence Day
The Independence March – an annual event marking the anniversary of the country gaining autonomy from Russia, Prussia, and Austria in 1918, following 123 years of partitions – is organized by the National Front Group ( not only – Admin.)
It is a huge showcase of Polish nationalism revival and anti-EU protest. The EU is seen as being the biggest threat to the country’s sovereignty, which is true.
On November 11, 1918, Joseph Pilsudski, as Commander in Chief of all
Polish forces, proclaimed the Republic of Poland a free and independent
nation, after 123 years of division among Russia, Prussia and Austria!
National Independence Day is a public holiday in Poland. The 1000 years old Sovereign Poland ceased to exist after the Third Partition of Poland (1795), when the territory of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth was divided between the Russian Empire, the Austrian Empire, and Prussia. Poland became able to regain its independence, when the empires collapsed as a result of WWI.
On November 11, 1918, Józef Piłsudski arrived in Warsaw and assumed control of Poland. National Independence Day was instituted as a public holiday in 1937. It was celebrated twice before WWII broke out. It was not celebrated officially under the Communist regime, although some people observed it informally. Independence Day of Poland was restored in 1989 and has been celebrated each year ever since.
It is widely celebrated throughout the country with parades, marches, concerts, firework displays, official speeches and church ceremonies. The main military parade is held at the Piłsudski Square in the capital city of Warsaw. It includes a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Ha ha ha!
