Opposition party Nowoczesna is calling for ending the monthly commemorations of the 2010 Smolensk air crash after the Saturday commemorations participants and the police clashed with protesters trying to block the march of participants to the presidential palace, Polska The Times newspaper and Gazeta Wyborcza daily report.
The Smolensk catastrophe commemoration turned into a clash as dozens of protesters staged a sit-in to disrupt the event. They were forcibly removed by the police, with former anti-communist activist Wladyslaw Frasyniuk charged with attacking a police officer, according to a tweet by the interior ministry.
Nowoczesna called on ruling part Law and Justice (PiS) leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski to stop organizing the monthly events as they divide Poles. Kaczynski, on the other hand, strongly criticized the protesters, saying they want to deny the participants the right to pray.
