Poland is undergoing a new wave of de-communization. The country’s government decided that the country had not yet removed all the reminders of the history of Soviet Poland and developed a law prohibiting the propaganda of communism or any other totalitarian system. The parliament voted in favor of new norms, to approve amendments to the law prohibiting the propaganda of Communism demanding the dismantling of symbols of the Soviet era, including monuments and memorials. A Senator from the ruling party “Law and Justice” (PiS) said that the adoption of such a law was initiated by representatives of local authorities, who could not cope with this problem on their own. He was supported by 79 Senators, none spoke against him. The Senator also emphasized that the law was accepted in agreement, overall political differences, which, in turn, demonstrates the need for its adoption. All costs associated with changing the names of streets will fall on the shoulders of local governments. Citizens living on such streets will not be required to change their documents, but all plates, business cards, signage, etc. will have to be changed at own expense. Some are convinced that for Poles such a reform is an extra worry. Discussing this issue online, a significant number of people express dissatisfaction because of future confusion and losses for businessmen.

So, how do you feel about the decision of the Sejm of Poland to ban the propaganda of Communism?
