Patriotic Poles Appeal to the Holy Mother of God

Tens of thousands, mainly young people and young families, marched through Warsaw yesterday, 11th November, on Poland’s Independence Day, appealing to the Holy Mother of God to guide and protect Poland from her enemies.

The annual march, organised by Ruch Narodowy, the National Movement, was attended by 50,000 people according to the civil authorities. The organisers calculated the attendance to be considerably more.

At 10.00am the official programme began with the organisers encouraging everyone to attend the traditional Mass before gathering at the Roman Dmowski roundabout for public recitation of the rosary. At 2.00pm the President of the March for Independence Committee, Robert Bąkiewicz, pictured here with his rosary, announced the official start of the March and amidst the red glare of hundreds of flares and dense smoke rising to the heavens the march set off on its route towards the National Stadium.
