The rally was organised by representations from the Federation of Polish Americans and the Polish-American Congress in New Jersey, Michigan, Massachusetts, Florida and California, grouped under the title of "Americans for Security in Central and Eastern Europe".
They said in a statement: "Russia is mounting massive war preparations on the borders with Poland and the neighbouring Baltic countries. Remember Russian aggression in Georgia and the war in neighbouring Ukraine.
"Now is a critical time for Polish Americans to rally in front of the White House for significant and lasting US military presence in Poland and the region to strengthen NATO defensive capability". (ek/rg)
