ACTA - 26.01.2012 - Black Thursday

26.01.2012 - Black Thursday

I've decided to call the date 26.01.2011 as Black Thursday in Poland. People is ashamed of the government and many protest actions took place all over the country.

Below I present some pictures, so you People could imagine what's going on here.

After Wikipedia: "Polish members of parliament hold up Guy Fawkes masks in protest of the treaty. Note that the bottom right mask features a teardrop and one individual gestures with the V sign which, in Poland, is commonly associated with the Solidarity movement's historical protests where demonstrators used it to express that they would have victory against the ruling party. It eventually became epitomized by Tadeusz Mazowiecki, who symbolically used the gesture after winning the country's first partially free elections since the induction of Soviet hegemonic rule."
