Thugs Linked to Government Attack Polish Gay Marchers

From, we find this morning that marchers in a Polish gay tolerance parade (Equality Days) were attacked by youth “counterprotestors” (thugs).  Dozens of the parade's 1,000 marchers were injured.  Media sources indicate that there is a link between this particular group of thugs and Polish President Lech Kaczynski who has a history of oppressing gays.

The Polish government is under warning from the EU that it may lose its voting rights if it continues to oppose gay rights.
