AKIPRESS.COM - Poland’s eurosceptic political leaders joined far-right groups as tens of thousands of people marched through the capital in a parade to mark a century of national independence, Independent reports.
More than 250,000 people gathered on the streets of Warsaw to mark the 100th anniversary of Poland’s rebirth as a state at the end of the First World War.
President Andrzej Duda, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and the leader of the conservative ruling party, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, walked in a crowd fronted by soldiers carrying a huge flag with the words “For You Poland".
Some marchers chanted “away with the EU”, while members of the nationalist group All-Polish Youth burned the EU flag.
Others held banners stating “God, Honour, Homeland”, and red flares blanketed sections of the march with smoke.
The government then agreed to hold a joint event in the city that would include various far-right groups.
