The murder of Pawel Adamowicz

As thousands have joined marches across Poland in protest at the murder of Pawel Adamowicz, Mayor of Gdansk, Left Unity joins Gregor Gysi, President of the European Left, in declaring:

“With deep dismay, we have learned of the murder of Pavel Adamowicz, the mayor of the Polish city of Gdansk. It should not become normal for politicians who represent democratic values to become increasingly victims of violent conflicts. Pavel Adamowicz has sharply criticized nationalist forces. As a politician he has taken a pragmatic course and has also campaigned for the rights of minorities by, for example, offering the government to welcome a group of Syrian refugees in Gdansk. Our deep compassion lies with his family to his friends and companions.”
