Event

Commemorative events marking Poland’s 100th anniversary of independence will be held nationwide on Sunday, November 11. Nationalist groups were planning to organize a march through Warsaw on Sunday, but the city’s mayor banned the demonstration on Wednesday, November 7. However, President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki overturned the mayor’s order, instead stating that they would organize a march that is open to all Polish people. According to media reports, some nationalist leaders have threatened to hold the rally regardless of the government’s decision. Similar commemorative and nationalist events are expected in major urban areas throughout the country. Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions are anticipated around all political events.

Context

Around 60,000 people participated in a nationalist march through Warsaw during last year’s independence day celebrations.

Advice

Individuals in Poland, particularly in Warsaw, on November 11 are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
