„Thousands of protesters have rallied in central Warsaw chanting „Shame!” after Poland’s president granted the nationalist government more power over court appointments.”

„Many held candles and pens symbolising President Andrzej Duda’s readiness to sign the controversial legal changes. It is now easier for the government to appoint a new Supreme Court chief.”

„Protests also took place in more than 20 Polish cities and towns on Thursday evening against the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party’s court reforms. The PiS argues that Poland’s judiciary was not properly reformed after the end of communism in 1989 and that the courts need to be fairer and more efficient. For more than a year there have been „Chain of Lights” demonstrations demanding judicial independence.”
