Mass protests in Poland amid EU law controversy – BBC News

On Thursday Poland’s top court ruled that key articles of EU law were “incompatible” with the constitution.

It sparked fears that Poland could exit the union, prompting calls for major demonstrations nationwide on Sunday.

Organisers said protests took place in more than 100 towns and cities, with some 100,000 people turning out in Warsaw alone.

Donald Tusk, former President of the European Council and now leader of the opposition party Civic Platform, called on people to “defend a European Poland” at the rally in the capital.
