Celebration of Independance Day in Poland, 11.11.2013.
Presented photos shows March of Independance organized by ultra right-wing nationalist groups from Poland. I’m not proud of way of thinking and behavior that they present by themselves. These groups becomes ultra nationalist and fascist. They use symbols and ideologies of fractions which our grandparents were fighting during II World War.
I’m also specifically not proud of this material. Nationalist militias participated in this march, they made lot of damages and robberies in Warsaw, attacking one of Squats in Warsaw, seting fire under contemporary sculpture, destroying lot of storefronts and attacking embassy of Russia. I was taking photos of that incident and a crowd of angry beasts attacked me, and take lynch on me (for being photographer and doing my job), destroying part of my gear. I’ve lost half of material with riots, fighting with police and frames from embassy attack. Friend of mine - also photographer - was taken to hospital, alfter being thrown to the ground and kicked several times in the head (they taked of his helmet! bastards). This should not happen.
One thing - please do not allow Your fellow-citizens to make that point. It’s pointless. Cheers.
