WE REMEMBER!

ALINA CZERNIAKOWSKA

A sad day, Tuesday 19 November 2013. Media informed about the death of mother of priest Jerzy Popiełuszko. For me – I think that many Poles think so – she was a special person – mother. Because of her love to her son and her Good and Truth given to us. I did not know Mrs. Marianna personally but I was often near her, I was looking and listening to her answers to questions of journalists. »

Thanksgiving for life of the saint priest’s mother clearly give way to grief and mourning. »

CZESŁAW RYSZKA

First a few questions: who was so wise and gave a consent to organize a route of the march of independence near the Russian embassy? Who is responsible for actions of the police who could not defend even one building? After all, it was not all about a protest of thousands of people against the Russian embassy but about a group of masked people who did not arrive at the march for patriotic reasons at all. »
