Last weekend I was invited to appear on a radio show entitled ‘Level Talk with John Harrison’ to talk about recent events in Poland. As a rule I largely avoid public appearances in any shape or form, however, felt compelled to accept this invitation.
Recent events in Poland are gravely worrying. In the last week Amnesty International have published a report on the illegal arrest, assault, surveillance and monitoring of anti-government protestors. Human Rights Watch have published a 37 page report on the ‘rule of law and human rights under attack in Poland’. Each week that passes only emboldens the government to stretch the limits of the law further and further.
At this point every single person that loves or has a reason to love Poland has to ask themselves two simple questions. If not you then who? If not now then when? That’s why I decided to accept the invitation. If nobody is interested in what is happening in Poland it is down to us to start the conversation and make it loud enough so we cannot be ignored.
This afternoon I recorded the show with John Harrison, and a charming bubbly lawyer who will one day be the next Mrs Jagger. It will be released on Friday evening. Check back here then for the details.
