Half a million Poles are protesting against the nationalist-populist government in Warsaw, organizers say, in one of the country’s largest demonstrations since the fall of communism in 1989.

Jan Grabiec, a spokesman for the organizers, tells AFP the city authorities estimate participation at 500,000, a few months ahead of legislative elections.
