Hungary and Poland – the governments of these countries are purposely and consciously breaking the fundamental rights of the EU. For me as a Pole it is something unbelievable – not only because it is a hit in our unity but because the politicians should never be able to do so. We had special structures like the Constitutional Court or Supreme Court. However a few months after the present governing party PiS won the elections it has appeared that they can do anything. First of all they changed the law about the Constitutional Court to put their party colleagues inside its structures. The court was against it, it was clearly going far beyond the borders established by the constitution. But the prime minister – Beata Szydło did not publish the court’s judgement. Now the party is trying to take over the courts, beginning with the supreme one. Why? Because they want more power. They’re changing law so dramatically to avoid the consequences. Still, no matter all of this, PiS has a big support in the polls. It is not like the citizens of our country want to live in authoritarian country. The truth is that many Poles do not participate in elections because there’s no alternative. Everywhere we have the same candidates who have nothing to propose to the society. Meanwhile PiS is spreading the money to everyone (except those who are actually in need, like disabled people). There’s only one problem. The budget doesn’t have money for it. The public debt is growing dramatically. The only question is “What’s the antidote?” The rest of the EU should act fast and firmly. The politicians should know that nobody is inviolable. But we cannot finish at article 7. We need to show the people, especially young, that the future lies in their hands. We should finance the local young politicians and non-governmental organizations, not the big parties which have money to promote themselves. The key to success is in the young, motivated, energetic people – like those in Europe Together. They’re the ones we need to focus on because they’re the future of the nation, the future of our continent.
