The worker's were demonstrating for change in Poland. In 1980, a worker named Lech Walesa started a trade union called Solidarity. It quickly gained support from the worker's and the Roman Catholic Church.
Worker's for change!
Solidarity was widely popular to the Polish people. The Roman Catholic Church accepted this under the leadership of Pope John Paul II. He was the first Polish Pope of the Catholic Church.
Solidarity is a great idea!
After all of the demonstrations, in 1988, the Polish regime established the first free parliamentary election. It was the first free election in Eastern Europe in 40 years ending the 45 year rule of Communist Poland. Walesa was elected first president until Aleksander Kwasniewski defeated her.
