I am ashamed to be Polish !!!
My post today is about Poland my homeland and country which I am come from.
Before I get to the point I want to say Poland it is beautiful country from the mountains to the sea with interesting history and fascinating traditions. I am not ashamed of this part of Poland…….. but…..
My shame lies in the political condition of the ruling party in Poland.
Slowly in Poland the right of women are taken away. The stripped away of deciding about thy abortion or contraception just in two cases women are allowed to stop the pregnancy. In my opinion this is women body and she should make decisions, not same politician who has not any idea. https://euobserver.com/opinion/149889
Next situation that affects me personally it is LGBT free zone in Poland which demands to exclusion of people LGBT people and their accepting family/ friends from society. This opens door to discrimination and intolerance. In my case as a gay men who doesn’t live in Poland I do not want return/visit Poland because it is dangerous , but what could LGBT people say who are living in Poland . Why politicians care about with who I am sleeping it is my life . Leave us alone. https://balkaninsight.com/2020/02/25/a-third-of-poland-declared-lgbt-free-zone/
Last situation with I don’t like is attempt to take away the freedom speech and attempt to close independent TV stations over which government don’t have influence. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/polish-parliament-media-law-chaos-b1901241.html
So I am ashamed of Poland Because in democratic country government is trying to take away freedom of speech or the identity of who you’re.
