Follow the big issues that shape Polish politics and society by signing up to our weekly newsletter "News from Poland: Democracy at Stake". It allows you to stay up to speed on developments concerning the ongoing assault on democratic institutions, rule of law, and human rights in Poland.

In light of the unprecedented actions the Belarusian regime has taken against its citizens and independent journalists, we call on the authorities of the Republic of Poland to support the citizens of Belarus seeking help in our country.

As independent journalists of a democratic country, we feel obliged to respond and therefore urge the Polish government to simplify and streamline the process of granting political asylum and international protection to all those who ask for it.

We appeal to make all possible efforts in the international arena to ensure that all human rights activists, including the journalists Roman Protasevich and Andrzej Poczobut, are released from Belarusian prisons.

Every day, 400 journalists at Gazeta Wyborcza write verified, fact-checked stories about Polish politics and society, keeping a critical eye on the ruling camp’s persistent assault on democratic values and the rule of law; the growing cultural tension between religious fundamentalism and human rights; and the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic. Our journalists are on the front lines in 25 Polish cities, reporting from the streets, hospitals, and courtrooms about issues that move public opinion.

We decided to make our service available to everyone free of charge in order to provide access to high quality journalism for expats and English speakers interested in Polish affairs. 

The access to information should be equal for all.
