SZCZECIN

EQUALITY MARCH 2022
saturday, july 30th

As an ongoing commitment to our queer community in Poland, also this year Gegen will actively take part of the 4th edition of the SZCZECIN’s Equality March.

On 30 July 2022, queer activists in Szczecin, Poland, are organising a Pride demonstration for the fourth time to protest against the anti-queer sentiment and policies in their country. In the face of opposition from the state, the Catholic Church and far-right movements, this takes a lot of courage, so we need to support them and show solidarity!

Together we will travel by bus to Szczecin on 30 July to join the demo.

The bus starts at 10:00 at Berlin Central Station (at the BVG bus stop on Europaplatz) and goes back there in the evening. For the trip, we will charge a solidarity fee of 10-20 euro per person. Please get in touch if you can't afford that.

You can also travel to Szczecin with the 9-euro ticket. Due to the bus journey, we will not accompany the train journeys this time. We recommend the following meeting points:

08:00 - Hauptbahnhof, in front of McDonalds
10:00 - Hauptbahnhof, in front of McDonalds

The demonstration of Szczecin Pride starts at 15:00, there will be a picnic from 12:00 Łąka Kany close to Szczecin's main railway station.

Share this call to action! Invite your friends!



We are working with the organizers to ensure out safety from the train station to the March and they have requested a rough count of how many people are coming from Berlin. We will also provide you with more detailed information on safety and logistics.

IMPORTANT



FOR SAFETY REASONS, NO ONE SHOULD TRAVEL ALONE!

We are in close contact with the organizers of the Pride Demo regarding safety precautions in Poland and will keep everyone informed. They have emphasized that it is VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE TRAVEL IN A GROUP AND ONCE IN POLAND NO ONE GOES OFF BY THEMSELVES.

We look forward to a joyous and successful Pride Demo in Szczecin with you!

Important information about differences between Poland and Germany:

1. Stettin is relatively open, safe and progressive city. But even here, walking around with rainbow flags and gadgets alone and/or in dark, small side streets can cause agression. Please walk together with the group and use main roads.

2. Police in Stettin supports CSD organizers and LGBT+ community. It is not common in Poland and Lambda worked long time to achieve this state of things. Please do not provoke or attack police officers. In any danger, you can turn to them for help.

3. Any kind of drugs is illegal in Poland. We believe you can have absolutely awesome fun at our CSD without artificial chemistry in your brains. Please leave it at home. Any situation involving drug possesion or drug use by CSD participans would cause the CSD organizers a lot of trouble. We have enough trouble already from Polish gov't and church, so please do not add us problems.

4. Please have in mind that displaying nudity is a contravention in Polish law. Pride Organizers kindly request to respect this on the day of CSD, to avoid media focusing on nudity rather than our main demands: protecting queer teens from self harm and suicide, hate crime protection bill, same-sex partnership/marriage, dignified transition law, anti-discrimination education in schools. We will work on body positivity when we are done with these basic rights.

5. CSD is a peaceful demonstration. We do not use any violence. If attacked (which is highly unlikely to happen), we do not fight but flee and the police takes care of the situation.

6. If you are not able to follow these requests, please do not take part in the CSD. Please follow this event for more information!

HYGIENE CONCEPT /COVID-19 REGULATIONS WHEN TRAVELING TO POLAND:

WEATHER-APPROPRIATE CLOTHING
WATER /SNACKS
FACEMASKS ARE MANDATORY ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTS
PLEASE TEST YOURSELF IN SOLIDARITY WITH VULNERABLE GROUPS
