Freedom of expression: Amnesty criticizes restrictions on human rights in Poland

The human rights organization Amnesty International accuses Polish Government of increasingly limiting right to freedom of expression and assembly. The government undermines "with ever-new measures rule of law" and widens its control over judiciary, it says in report "Poland: On streets of defend human rights". Resistance, however, attempts to stop government "by all means". According to amnesty, peaceful demonstrators would be monitored, threatened and even prosecuted by police.

"The fact that peaceful protesters are criminalized solely because y make use of ir rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly draws a bleak picture of current situation of human rights in Poland," said Poland expert at Amnesty in Germany, Susan Wilms. For example, a law was adopted in December 2016, which gave priority to rallies that take place on a regular basis. Since n, above all, monthly government-friendly meetings would be allowed, but requests for peaceful meetings that were criticized for government were rejected. According to Wilms, this violates European and international human rights standards. Also, demonstrators protesting against government-friendly marches would be increasingly monitored and shadowed. Amnesty has also become known against peaceful demonstrators, partly because of minor mispasses. The presumption suggests that government critics should be harassed in this way.

Amnesty calls for EU assistance

The Polish authorities should ensure that right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression are guaranteed and protected, human rights organisation calls for. "The European Union and international community should actively demand this from ir Polish partners," report says. Amnesty calls on Polish government to withdraw legal restrictions on right of assembly and to drop ads against peaceful demonstrators.

Amnesty International researched 2017 for report between January and August. Among or things, employees participated as observers in public meetings and court proceedings. Their interlocutors included people and ir lawyers affected by police or judicial measures.
