The heads of 22 university-level schools in Warsaw-including the Warsaw University of Technology, University of Warsaw, Warsaw School of Economics, and the Warsaw University of Life Sciences-June 29 wrote an open letter to express their "concern and anxiety... over repeated aggressive attacks against foreign students studying at Warsaw's universities."

The authorities of Collegium Civitas were the first to warn about the problem. This school has about 80 students from African countries. In March one of them was brutally attacked in the street. The school organized a meeting with a police officer, a lawyer and members of the Nigdy Więcej (Never Again) association against racism. It turned out the attack was not an isolated case. Foreign students said they had been verbally abused and even beaten up. They complained that they found it difficult to report such attacks because police did not speak English.
