Poland’s abortion protests: A fight for democracy?

We debate Poland’s controversial abortion ruling and discuss environmental rights with activist Winona LaDuke.

Mass protests in Poland over the tightening of an already restrictive abortion law are showing no signs of easing.

Since October 22, hundreds of thousands of people have rallied across the country over the Constitutional Tribunal’s ruling, and their grievances are now morphing into a broader rejection of the country’s governing conservative party.

In this episode of UpFront, we debate the abortion ban and the protests it has triggered with Poland’s deputy foreign minister, Paweł Jabłoński and Karolina Wigura, political editor of the Polish weekly Kultura Liberalna.

And in a Special Interview, we discuss climate justice and Indigenous rights with activist and economist Winona LaDuke.
