Political power struggles in Poland

A struggle for political power has created a crisis in Poland. Apparent attempt by lawmakers to infringe on press freedoms led to heated protests both in and outside the nation's parliament. A controversial proposal to reduce the number of journalists with parliamentary accreditation and limiting their access to politicians is behind the increasing tension. In Warsaw, public anti-government demonstrations protested over apparent threats to democracy.

Advice For Travellers

Until political tensions subside, travellers should avoid all political and public gatherings since they may become violent unexpectedly and quickly.
