Poland Purges Supreme Court, and Protesters Take to Streets


Recommended Posts

Poland’s government carried out a sweeping purge of the Supreme Court on Tuesday night, eroding the judiciary’s independence, escalating a confrontation with the European Union over the rule of law and further dividing this already riven nation.

 

Poland was once a beacon for countries struggling to escape the yoke of the Soviet Union and embrace Western democracy. But it is now in league with neighboring nations, like Hungary, whose leaders have embraced authoritarian means to tighten their grip on power, presenting a grave challenge to a European Union that is already grappling with nationalist, populist and anti-immigrant movements.

Well fuck, Poland was my best/only bet for a Schengen passport.
