Storyboard Text

  • 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.
