October 2020. Thousands of people in the whole country are protesting against the abortion ban. Poland has one of the strictest abortion law in EU - new regulations do not allow for pregnancy termination due to the foetal defects - they accounted for 98% of legal cases last year.

For the whole month, starting from October 22nd, protestors and cars have been blocking the streets and completely paralizing the traffic.

In the middle of COVID crisis, those were the biggest strikes in Poland since 1989.
