International Solidarity with Women and Peaceful Protestors in Poland
The Netherlands Helsinki Committee stands in solidarity with all those in Poland who, for the last week, have peacefully protested against the politicized attack on women’s fundamental human rights and access to health care.
Thousands across Poland have protested peacefully against the decision by Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal to invalidate a legal ground for abortion. If this decision is given legal effect it will amount to a near-total ban on abortion in Poland.
We express our deep admiration for the courageous and tireless efforts of those defending the rights of women in Poland.
