Poland is pushing the EU into crisis 2
UCLXo7UDZvByw2ixzpQCufnA

Poland’s far-right party is subverting democracy, and setting the country on a collision course with the EU.




Poland is changing. In 2015, the far-right Law and Justice party, or PiS, won both the presidential election and a slim parliamentary majority. Since then, they’ve been working to cement their power by firing judges, purging the military and civil service, and cracking down on protesters and the media. All of this has put the country on a collision course with the European Union that could threaten Europe’s hard-won peace and prosperity following centuries of conflict.

To truly understand the international conflicts and trends shaping our world you need a big-picture view. Video journalists Sam Ellis and Liz Scheltens use maps to tell the story and chart their effects on foreign policy.

Two corrections:

At 7:17 Viktor Orban is incorrectly described as President, when he is actually the Prime Minister.
At 5:27 and 7:32 Finland is mislabeled as not being a member state of the European Union. Finland joined the EU in 1995.

In Poland there was never a terrorist attack, we never had a shootout at school, we do not have ghettos and the district to which the police are afraid to arrive. Why ?
