MARTIAL LAW IN POLAND

On the 13 December 2006, the 25th anniversary of introduction of Martial Law was commemorated in Poland.

The photos in this gallery were taken on the 13th of December, 2006 and come from various sources:
- from the exhibition: "Martial law in an album of the communist Security Service”, under Wawel Royal Castle, Cracov
- the happening: "Youth Remember"
- from the current newspapers and magazines

25 years ago the communist regime of Poland declared war against its own nation.
General Jaruzelski used 70 thousands of soldiers, 30 thousands members of the police force, 1750 tanks, and 1900 armoured vehicles against Polish people.
The introduction of martial law is believed to be responsible for a number of deaths. Only common sense of 10 million members of the "Solidarity" trade union prevented bloody war in the country. Martial law had been imposed in clear violation of the country's constitution. It had lasted for 586 days. Martial law allowed communistic regime to survive till 1989.
For Poland it had been lost time.
