Poles burn EU flags as thousands rally for independence
Depending on whom you believe, 25,000 or 50,000 Poles rallied in Warsaw on the anniversary of Polish independence, denouncing the EU. AFP, via the U.K. Telegraph, reports:
Tens of thousands of protesters poured into Warsaw's streets on Wednesday for a demonstration organised by the far right, marching under the slogan "Poland for the Polish" and burning an EU flag.
which marked the anniversary of Poland's return to independence after the First World War, while organisers put the numbers at 50,000.
"God, honour, homeland," chanted the protesters as they marched under a sea of red-and-white Polish flags.
Demonstrators trampled and burned a European Union flag at one point, while a banner added to the anti-EU theme with the slogan "EU macht frei" ("Work makes you free" in German), a reference to the slogan over the gates at Auschwitz.
Actually, the slogan at Auschwitz was “Arbeit Macht Frei,” which translates as the article states. “EU macht frei” is this equating the EU with Nazism.
If the EU keeps forcing member nations to accept hundreds of thousands of Muslims – becoming millions as the flow continues – it may well fall apart.
