With stupefaction and indignation we accepted a statement that "demonstrations are a normal form of dialogue between the government and society." We read it in an interview given by premier Buzek in Gazeta Wyborcza in October of last year.
At a meeting with our Presidium and in a letter to the 4th Congress of the All-Poland Alliance of Trade Unions the prime minister sternly stated that there cannot be government-trade union separatist discussions.

 Antisemitism Worldwide 2000/1 - Poland
In December 1999 the local court in Opole declared that Dr. Dariusz Ratajczyk, a researcher at the University of Opole, had infringed the law against Holocaust denial in his book Tematy niebezpeieczne (Dangerous Topics), but that his crime was “socially harmless” (see ASW 1999/2000).
Two liberal mainstream newspapers Gazeta Wyborcza (Electoral Gazette) and Rzeczpospolita (Republic) thought that Ratajczyk should not be prosecuted, in the name of freedom of speech.
Some of the articles were apologetic and even antisemitic and hinted that Jewish collaboration with Soviet troops before 1941, during the 1939—June 1941 occupation, could serve as an explanation and even as a justification for the pogrom.

 Anti-Semitism Worldwide 1999/2000 - Poland
No party with an overtly anti-Semitic platform is represented in the Polish Sejm, or Senate, although anti-Semitic utterances by some deputies have been reported.
Several deputies of smaller parties who are in electoral coalition with the Akcja Wyborcza “Solidarnosc” (Electoral Action Solidarity), such as the Liga Republikanska (Republican League), a militant anti-communist group with one seat in parliament, include anti-Semitism in their anti-communist agenda.
The most openly anti-Semitic, extra-parliamentary parties are the Polska Stronnictwo Narodowe (Polish National Party), Odrodzenie Narodowe Polski (Polish National Renaissance) and Polska Wspolnota Narodowa (Polish National Commonwealth), headed by Boleslaw Tejkowski, who has a long history of anti-Semitic activity and has on occasion even suggested that the pope is a closet Jew.
