The citizens of Wrocław met on Monday evening in Salt Square to express their opposition to racism and their solidarity with the Americans who have been protesting in many cities in the USA for a week. “We do not agree with the racist actions of the state.” – stressed the organizers, at the same time pointing out that this is not an official assembly, because these were banned by the PiS government. They recommended that everyone should light candles under the spire on Salt Square or lay flowers and then move away.In spite of this, the place was secured by the police, and the participants of the “demonstration” were putting banners.
