In Poland, the mayor of Warsaw is banning this year’s annual march of far-right groups. The march, which ostensibly celebrates Poland’s independence, was attended by 60,000 people last year, with participants chanting slogans including “F*** off with the refugees” and “Pure Poland, white Poland.” The march organizers vowed to go ahead with the event this Sunday, in defiance of the ban. Democracy Now! will be broadcasting from Poland next month for the U.N. climate conference.
