The pouring rain did not deter the protesters. A huge expanse of umbrellas covered Adam Mickiewic square. Traffic was blocked on roads, and trams were diverted to ensure the continuous influx of people.
The determination to participate in the demonstration was evident. You could read it on the faces of the crowds dressed in black, the color of mourning, because the first to die (if this law is approved) would be the rights of Polish women. Under the umbrellas, you can see the faces of grandmothers, daughters and grandchildren.
Three generations of women are united today in the struggle and indignation against an anachronistic and meaningless law. And next to them are the husbands, companions and friends, because today’s demonstration in Poland is not only a demonstration in defense of women’s rights, but above all, a battle of cultures. This was repeated in the speeches of the speakers on the stage and the chants of the protesters.
