2020 Polish National Strike


Flag of the National Strike.

In late October, the Polish Supreme Court ruled that abortion was unconstitutional and so would be outlawed in most cases. This decision was made under the nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party. The new laws passed determine that abortions will only be allowed for pregnancies resulting from rape, incest and or when a woman’s life is at risk.


Protests began almost immediately after, with hundreds of thousands of feminists taking to the streets following the judicial announcement.
