WE WANT A CHANGE!!
Hello, my name is Lech Walesa and I need YOUR help to build my organization called the Solidarity.
POLAND'S CITY HALL
Keep the Solidarity running!
You're under arrest!
As Poland's new president, this term will not be easy to rebuild Poland's economic and employment rates but we will SUCCEEDED!
Workers in Poland protest for a change in the city. In 1980, a worker named Lech Walesa organized a national trade union known as the Solidarity. The Solidarity gained support of the workers and the people of the Roman Catholic Church (under the leadership of the first Polish pope, Pope John Paul ll at the time)
During the 1980's, the city was under military rule. Walesa was arrested, but the Solidarity movement still continued. Finally, after a new wave of demonstrations in 1988, the Polish regime agreed to free parliamentary elections. These were the first free elections in Eastern European 40 years. A new government was elected, ending the 45 years of Communist rule in Poland.
In December of 1990, Walesa was chosen as president. Poland’s newly decided path, was not an easy. Market reforms led to a severe unemployment and popular discontent rate. At the end of 1995, Aleksander Kwasniewski, a former Communist, overthrew Walesa and became the new president of Poland. He continued to build off of Walesa's presidential plans: Poland’s move toward an increased economy for Poland.
