Warsaw. Poland. Saturday afternoon around 3pm (27.06) a van belonging to a homophobic foundation, that goes around the city of Warsaw spreading hatespeech (like announcing the supposed link between sexual education, homosexuality and child-abuse) got stopped by a group of queer rebels and anarchist friends in front of squatted autonomous social center in the very center of the city.

The crew of that van got verbally and physically attacked and the van got redecorated, rid of numberplates, mirrors and windows got painted, the hateful banners got ripped and tires got stabbed. On a side of the van stop bullshit was written. Some bystanders tried to play heroes and got in the fights with rebels and fast realized that it wasn’t a good idea. One comrade got wounded. Spontaneous action took place in broad daylight in the very center of the city next to the police station, showing that the time of fear and defensive has passed.
The police was lazy that day and have arrived on the spot too late (the cop shop is around 100 m away).
The State and the right wing psychopaths have lunched their anti LGBTQ+ offensive after catholic church child-sexual abuses gain some publicity in the country. In doing so, they are trying to divert the attention away from the priests and use the momentum to push forward their fascist ideologies trying to make link in people’s minds that homosexuality equals paedophilia and sexual education is responsible for both, therefore targeting sexual education and LGBTQ+ folks. Since few years there has been an increase in the queerphobic attacks on individuals, groups and events like pride-demos.
The van of that foundation got attacked already several times throughout the city, this time it could be treated as a sort of spontaneous birthday gift for the squatted social center was celebrating it’s 9th anniversary.
Pictures and the description of that event was published on a Stop Bzdurom organization website (Stop Bullshit), which targets queerphobic propaganda.
