What is it all about?
Poland has been in the news a lot recently. Soon after the “Law and Justice Party” (PiS) won the last parliamentary elections, it started ‘reforming’ the country, in particular the state media and the juridical system. While the parliamentary opposition remains fragmented, we have seen many protests on the street, regularly dominated by young people considering themselves ‘European’. The Polish society seems deeply divided between supporters of a consolidation of catholic state putting the “nation” first and proponents of a liberal society in an increasingly “European” Poland.
