Workers protest in Poland demanded for change and a worker named Lech Walesa created a organization called Solidarity. This organization gained the support of workers and the roman catholic church. The church was under the leadership of Pope John Paul the second. During a period of military rule in the 1980's, Walesa was arrested, but the movement continues.
After a new wave of demonstrations in 1988, the Polish regime agreed to free parliamentary elections in Poland. This was the first free elections i eastern Europe in 40 years. A new government was elected in Poland. This new government ended the 45 years of communist rule in Poland. Walesa was chosen as president in December 1990.
Poland's new path was not a easy one. Rapid free market reforms led to severe unemployment and popular discontent. At the end of 1995 a new leader came to defeat the former president. His name was Aleksander Kwasniewski and he was a former communist. He continued Poland's move toward increasing prosperous free market economy.
