In August, the Gazeta Wyborcza Foundation together with Gazeta Wyborcza and Dagens Nyheter started the “Solidarity with Poland” campaign. The campaign was launched soon after, next to the name of Gazeta Wyborcza, the sentence appeared: “There is no freedom without solidarity.” Gazeta Wyborcza used it for the first time when Poland regained its freedom back in 1989. It expressed the joint efforts to build a new state based on the principles of democracy, solidarity and community. Now it returns to the front page because the times in which we live yet again require this same noble message and commitment.

The main aim of the “Solidarity with Poland” campaign is to inform the international audience about the most pressing threats to Polish democracy and to build strong support for our struggle in defense of the rule of law. To do that we created the weekly newsletter in which our most brilliant journalists describe the state of recent affairs in Poland. Every week our newsletter is focused on a different pillar of democracy such as: the educational system, judiciary, Poland’s international relations and so on.

The Gazeta Wyborcza Foundation also aims to built a Solidarity With Poland Fund, with which we plan to finance activities to support discriminated groups. By donating, you will support not only independent journalism, but also all those who, thanks to the work of our journalists, feel safer during protests, struggles with the police or in court. In the fight for a better tomorrow, every penny counts.

The abuse of power comes as no surprise. With the “News from Poland” service, Gazeta Wyborcza and Gazeta Wyborcza foundation are joining forces to help those with limited access to media coverage about Poland due to the language barrier. Our goal is to guarantee open access to high quality journalism for expats and English speakers interested in Polish affairs.
