The Polish government and the self-declared patriotic and nationalist organisations behind the Independence March have reached agreement on joint commemorations marking the centennial of Poland’s independence to be held on Sunday, according to a report.
Following talks closed shortly before midnight on Friday, the announcement was made by the head of the Polish Prime Minister’s Office, Michał Dworczyk and spokesperson of the Independence March association, Damian Kita.
Both sides agreed to joining two legal assemblies, the Independence March and the official White-and-Red march hosted by Polish authorities, Krzysztof Bosak, leader of the nationalist political group called the National Movement said, Poland’s PAP news agency reported.
The march will be held under the patronage of Polish President Andrzej Duda, who is to deliver a speech at the event, PAP said.
The march will follow the same route through Warsaw typically taken by the Independence March.
