More Protests against ACTA

For the last few das, angry anti-ACTA protests have taken place around Poland. Each day, thousands of people come out to protest, despite -10 and -20 degree temperatures. In Warsaw we have been active in the protests, moving them throughout the street and lending some radical slogans. Tonight thousands marched with us through Warsaw in another spontaneous demo. People shouted mostly anti-government slogans, throwing firecrackers and lighting some flares. At this demo, when some politicians showed up, they were chased away by the crowd. The police did not intervene.

These are some of the most widespread protests we have seen in years in Poland. We suppose that a lot of people are just angry and this was an issue that somehow sparked people to mobilize. Below are some photos and videos about the protests.
