It’s time to take the Union away from the so-called “eurocrats” because they will waste it – said Marian Kowalski, a national activist in an interview with, commenting on a demonstration “You will not extinguish Poland” planned for the following Friday by the “Gazeta Polska” Clubs.

    On Friday (October 1st) at noon, a demonstration of “Gazeta Polska” Clubs will start in front of the Representation of the European Commission at 14/16A Jasna St. in Warsaw under the slogan: “You will not extinguish Poland”.
