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.

White supremacy, or just countering what's happening in France, UK and elsewhere? We let in lots of migrants, the Media tells those immigrants that the white, native population is their enemy and to hate them, and so turns the growing immigrant population against the native white, European population. Oh, and calls any Briton, white or black, who wants to reduce immigration as "xenophobic" and silences them. Communists.

The problem in polish court is that the kids and ex communist members are the judges and their the ones running the court systems. They by polish law are above the law. Meaning many of the judges are crooks and thefs them selves. They can't be punished for breaking the law. And that's wat PIS is trying to change. Communism maybe ended in 89 but the people in power are still the same people who ran communism. Many of them have changed their names have put their children into places of power for their own agenda. And that goes across all major city's in poland. Poland has not never been better since PIS came to power and their trying to keep poland for the polish people and not be some kind of slave for the EU

Vox is a globalist liberal proxy. Poland wants to preserve it's heritage and identity. Poland doesn't want open borders. It had given it's soverignty to the EU. The EU demanded that Poland must allow Muslim immigrants to bring their poison to change the face of Poland forever. Poland rejected globalism and the muslim invasion. So did Hungary. Vox carefully avoided this subject. It also neglected to mention Brexit. Vox is a liberal biased mouth piece for the globalist. Stand strong Poland, Hungary and Britain. Italy and France will soon follow.

Crap, under Tusk government billions of euro were defrauded on tax carousels, and disfunctional state finances even EU itself warned about that. PiS won not on anti European sentiments but due to Tusks government incompetence.

>That feel when the Poles get called Nazis Maybe. Just _maybe,_ the Poles have seen what true authoritarianism is? Maybe they’ve lived with their head stomped on by a jackboot before, and know the warning signs of it is? ... nah. It’s not like they lived for 6 years occupied by totalitarian Germans, and then another 40 under the totalitarian Soviets. They’re just ignorant racists that can’t stand looking at brown people. They just don’t know how loving and caring Muslims are.

Poland has been becoming more conservative for a long time. Naturally the "white extremist groups" mentioned in the video would feel they have more in common with the right than the left (there's a big surprise). But that has nothing to do with the bulk of the country's Democratic journey to conservatism which may indeed turn out to be a very good thing for Poland. And the extremists choosing to march with conservatives absolutely does NOT mean that the conservatives in the march agree with the extremists on anything except celebrating continuing conservative political victories! As awful as the extremists on the Polish far right may be, they are no worse than the Communist extremists on the far left that are controlled by Moscow right next door! If the EU has problems with Poland, they are of the EU's own making! Poland needs to find the solutions to domestic issues that work for Poland first and foremost!

Well as Polish left oriented guy, I need to say, I dont like and Will never vote to PiS, but the True is that PO goverment (Most Time with Tusk as Prime minister) have been propably most corupt and one of worst rulling goverments in Polish post communist history, as fact for 8 years of Tusk and PO rulling, many companies have every year stole tens of bilions (yeah bilions in any currency you want to calculate) from Value Addet Tax. Someone even calculate that Poland under PO rule, lost every year enough money to operate all NASA budget EVERY YEAR FOR 8 YEARS. Plus many political affairs like Ambergold affair, hazard affair, watches affair, melioriation affair, shipbuilding affair, and many many more. In other hand its True that PiS dont take seriusly Polish court and constitution, is realy conservative. But it is many Times better than PO "warm water in tap" politic of doing nothing and closing eyes for corruption. Add to this fact that every Polish oposition party dont have any idea what to do if they won: PO, PSL, SLD, N., have radical left program which is unlogical or impossible to make hapend (and one more time, Im left oriented): Razem, Wiosna, or they are faaaaaar more right than PiS: KORWIN, ONR, BRAUN itp. And ther is KUKIZ which have in reality the same program as PiS. So, as you see, we are doomed, ther is not any other Way for next couple of years, sorry.

+EndHunter14 Dude, Im living here, in Poland. I know what this party is doing in my country. They are not patriots, they don't want good for Poland. A huge social policy that ruins the economy, bowing to the government of Izrela, infusing society with state propaganda television, and much more. I know what I am saying because I live here and I follow what is happening in politics. So do not tell me that this is a right-wing party, because there is no such in the Polish government. There are only hidden communist and socialist parties.

I don't understand why anyone with a IQ higher than 50, would watch or believe anything Vox videos state. They are nothing but a arm of the NWO, of course they don't want Poland to exit the EU, the EU'S control over all of Europe. As you have seen the EU has given all of Europe to the Middle Eastern muslim countries. Where the European women are being raped, being put into sex trafficking rings, while the working class people's taxpaying dollars are being used to keep these savages up. To house them, to feed them. While they take over the European Countries. With the blessings of the EU. The EU stands for evil United, it is for one thing and one thing only. The Extinction of the white race. The only white people would be a handful of elitist. These European countries that signed up to be in the EU , this was the worst thing they could have ever done. Now they have no voice whatsoever, the EU are passing laws letting so-called refugees by the hundreds of thousands into their Countries. The reason is to ruin the European white countries, have them turned into a third world Country. Just look at France and Greece. If anyone in their right mind can look and say, these countries have benefited from all of these "refugees" criminals mind you, coming to their country and keep a straight face, you are a liar. The quicker each and every country that joined the EU, removes themselves from the EU will be the best thing they have ever done. Then start deporting these people who care not about assimilating to the European way of life, but want to take over their country, and make it a islamic country.

Uh that feels umcomfortable I mean I don't like PiS and I kind of feel trapped now. They lead to a teacher strike, but since teachers aren't going to vote for them anyway, they aren't going to give them a raise probably. They aren't goi g to legalize gay marriage any time soon either, I suppose. (which is very important for me and a prime reason to emigrate to Canada in a few years) But this video is a bit too overexadurated.
Peter Griffin (1 day ago)

Aren't polish people not afraid of russians attacks if they leave eu. And what with that religion bullshit? Burn christianity and other religions like they burned witches and other "nonbelievers". I don't know what is exactly in Poland but I would just refuse all religious bullcrap. And with eu like can't you vote to let Poland decide what happens in Poland and who can go in out and stay(but I guess this my view is to naive). Good luck. Mortal enemy of polish 😀
