Police in Warsaw, Poland used tear gas to subdue protesters demanding a quicker end to stay-at-home orders in the country, Reuters reported Saturday.
Like the U.S., Poland has begun reopening some business in parts of the country at the start of the month in an effort to salvage the economy amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The protesters, who claimed the shutdowns in Warsaw has threatened their income, have staged demonstrations in the capital city since late last month. The organizers planned a march that was blocked by police who cited government restrictions temporarily banning public gatherings amid the pandemic.
Unfortunately we are dealing with cases of aggression towards police. Due to the attacks on civil servants, we used methods of direct confrontation such as physical force and (tear) gas, the Warsaw police said in a statement to Reuters.

Joke told to me by my neighbor of Polish decent:

D J Z B E N S K I Z E.
The doctor then asks, “Can you read any of that?
The Polish guy says, Read it? I know da guy”.
I believe that Warsaw is run by a very liberal Mayor.
Would like to hear more about Poland and Hungary during this crisis-hoax. Trying to get news from Google about either is useless since both countries are run by conservative parties, Google only has trashy propaganda articles about both nations.

“Police... used tear gas.” Unethical. Polish people have seen worse, much worse. Thankfully, Poland and Rome will always be strong.
According to the IHME site, the day with the *maximum* number of COVID deaths in Poland - all of Poland - recorded 27 such deaths. From March until now, the Poles rarely recorded more than 20 deaths per day. So it’s hardly surprising they’re getting antsy about any lockdown.
That’s good. My Polish last name has a tangle of consonants and vowels that is almost as hard to make sense of.
How Gestapo of them.
How ZOMO of them.
How ZOMO of the protestors
How GESTAPO of the harsh police tactics
