Today is Poland’s National Independence Day, and Polish patriots staged a march for the occasion in Warsaw, as they do every year. Our Polish correspondent Green Infidel is at the march, and sent some photos and messages a few hours ago, when it was still daylight in Poland.
Here are some excerpts from his notes:
A lot of Hungarians come for this march. The march has always been pro-Orbán. But ultra-nationalists like Jobbik also show up.
A Spanish nationalist leader was just speaking out against Islam, and Roberto Fiori, the head of the Italian Forza Nuova Party is speaking now.
Tommy Robinson was scheduled to speak, but has not yet appeared.
We’re heading to the national stadium now where there will be more speeches. We’ve crossed the Poniatowski Bridge and are below it, but can see behind us the march is still on the whole of the bridge and beyond.
For a different viewpoint, here’s a report on the occasion from The Independent: “Fascists to stage ‘world’s biggest’ far-right march in Warsaw on Polish Independence Day”
