Representatives of national and ethnic
minorities organisations have called on Polish authorities to tackle the rising
wave of xenophobia and violence based on nationality, race and religion.
“We are a country with a long and proud tradition of freedom and tolerance, but we are becoming a state that the world and its own national minorities perceive as increasingly xenophobic,” minority representatives wrote in their statement.
The organisations also pointed to many manifestations of anti-Semitism that appeared during the passage of the so-called Holocaust Law.
