PM invites everyone to join Independence March in Warsaw

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has invited everyone to join Sunday's official Independence March in Warsaw, which, as he said, will be a "grand and safe" event, adding that he dreams of "a modern, happy Poland where people can talk to each other."

As part of events marking the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence on November 11, the Polish government will hold the official White and Red March at 3 p.m.

"It will be a safe march, and at the same time a march full of joy, because regardless of what various provocateurs might do, it will be a huge, many-thousand-strong rally of white-and-red hearts, flags, and certainly great hope for the future," the head of government told a private TV broadcaster, inviting everyone to participate in the event.

Asked whether the former Prime Minister, the head of the European Council Donald Tusk is also welcome to take part, Mateusz Morawiecki replied: "I invite everyone to join in the celebrations. I would like this day to be a day of unity."

The prime minister named the security of Poles and economic development leading to growth in the wealth of Polish families as "very basic conditions" around which to achieve national consensus.

"These matters should be removed from the parentheses. We are trying to build national agreement around them," he stressed.
