I could have mentioned more points with which I am protesting against this government but I wanted to concentrate on those which are the most important ones, which are detrimental to the existence and functioning of the whole state and society.
I do not address any calls to the current authorities, because I think that it would not achieve anything. Many people wiser and better known than me, as well as many Polish and European institutions have already called this government to various actions, and invariably these calls were ignored and the caller was only pelted with mud. I will probably be pelted with mud too but at least I will be in good company.
On the other hand, I would like the President of PiS and the entire PiS nomenclature to acknowledge that my death directly condemns them and that they have my blood on their hands.
I appeal to all Poles who decide who governs in Poland to oppose what the current power is doing and this is why I protest. And do not be fooled by the fact that from time to time the activities of the authorities quieten down and that there is the appearance of normality (as recently). In a few days or weeks, they will again continue their offensive, they will break the law again. They will never step back and they will not give back what they once obtained.
It’s a pretty old-fashioned saying, but it’s very fitting here: Who if not us ? Who – if not the citizens, can clean up our country? If not now when? Every moment of delay causes the situation in the country to become more and more difficult and it will be increasingly difficult to fix everything.
First of all, I urge the PIS supporters to wake up – even if you like the PiS postulates, take into account that not every way of their implementation is acceptable. Implement your ideas within the democratic rule of law, not the way you do today.
Those who do not support PiS, because the policy is indifferent to them or have other preferences I call for action – it is not enough to wait to see what time will bring, not enough to express dissatisfaction in your circle of friends, you need to act. There are a lot of forms and possibilities to do so.
Remember, however, that the PiS electorate are our mothers, brothers, neighbours, friends and colleagues. It is not about fighting a war with them (that is what PiS wants) or “converting them” (because it is naive) but to make their views comply with the laws and principles of democracy. It maybe enough if you change the leadership of the party.
Me, an ordinary man like you, I call you all – do not wait any longer! We need to change this power as soon as possible before it can completely destroys our country, before it completely deprives us of freedom. And I love freedom above all.
That’s why I decided to do this self-inflammation and I hope my death will shake the conscience of many people, that society will wake up and that you will not wait until the politicians do something – because they will not!
Wake up! It’s not too late yet!
