Participants of the protests held up banners with the inscription #Wolnemedia (free media) and collected food items for those travelling to Warsaw on Tuesday to join a bigger protest organized by KOD (committee for the Defense of Democracy).

Demonstrations across Poland continue since Friday, following a protest by opposition politicians which disrupted a debate and vote on the 2017 budget. The Łódź Post reported.

Despite the protests, The speaker of Poland’s upper house, Stanisław Karczewski, confirmed that he will move ahead and put forward proposed changes for media access to the Polish parliament.
