After the protest a few comrades went to the police station to protest the arrest of activists from Femen who made an action at the Stadium.
Below is a leaflet which was handed out during the protest and a few more photos:
EURO FOR A FEW
AUSTERITY FOR THE REST
Why We are Protesting
The government has spent around 26 billion euro around the EURO. Several billion were spent in Warsaw alone. At the same time that the government is so generous with our tax dollars, we have been subjected to numerous cuts and austerity measures, since we are told that Poland is a poor country and we all have to tighten our belts.
The city has closed down public schools. There are not enough kindergartens, thousands of children cannot find a place, having disastrous consequences for many families.
The city fails to provide adequate public housing and the President of the city is doing everything to ensure that thousands will be made homeless with presidential decrees that allow the city to evict poor families with financial problems.
Public health care is in miserable condition.
The city has raised prices for many public services, to a level many cannot afford.
The city has also made drastic budget cuts in many areas, ranging from culture to social services.
This is the politics of the state protecting the interests of the rich and elites, at the expense of working people.
Poland is trying to sell itself as an economic success and it is central to the plan of pushing austerity measures around Europe. But this city is one big Potemkin village, decorated for the games and trying to hide its misery. And this misery is growing all the time.
In order for this pyramid of capitalism to collapse, we need to weaken the fundament which holds it up: our social accord.
