Dozens of people protested on Saturday 10 April 2021 in the Saski Park in the center of Warsaw, where ceremonies were held to commemorate the victims of the Smolensk catastrophe. At least six people have been detained – said a spokesman for the Warsaw Police Headquarters.
The protesters started gathering in the Saski park. Some of them had flags with the logo of the Entrepreneurs’ Strike, flags in national colors and yellow tulips tied with black ribbons. Barriers surrounded Piłsudski Square. The police blocked the streets leading to it. Access was only from the Saski garden. Police protected the entrances to the barriers, horse patrols were stationed in the park.
More and more participants of the protest, although their total number did not exceed several dozen, pressed the police cordon. Smoke candles and firecrackers were thrown. The spokesman for the Warsaw Police Headquarters, Commissioner Sylwester Marczak, informed that during the protest the officers detained at least six people. We were dealing with a violation of inviolability, as well as insulting a police officer and a refusal to provide data – he emphasized.
