Poland - Heading Right

Polen - Unterwegs nach rechts

First Hungary, now Poland - a massive swing to the right is taking place in Eastern Europe. Since Poland's nationalist party holds office, an authoritarian style has taken over: free media are under pressure, militias are formed, civil rights are limited and abortions to be forbidden again. While some are afraid of losing democracy, others support the politics of their government. Jakub, around 27 years old is a member of a paramilitary group in the east of Poland. Marching, shooting, fighting - exercises for the case of an emergency. He wishes for more border controls and is against the Schengen Agreement. Marija is 23 and claimed during the Corpus Christi procession in Cracow that she's in favor of tightening the abortion law as planned by the government. An abortion should only be possible if the mother's life is threatened, but not after a rape or due to serious disabilities. Parts of the Polish civil society are against it and call for demonstrations against the government's politics.
