As revealed by the AEF press agency, they have just approached the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) so that it can position itself on the attitude to adopt, one of the possible options being to suspend, or even to ‘exclude, Solidarnosc from the international organization.

Joint letter

Tygodnik Solidarnosc (also called Tysol) has a circulation of just 5,000 copies. It is almost inaccessible to newsstand sales and its impact on the Polish public debate is nil. On the other hand, its activity on the Internet is far from being negligible, with the opening, a few months ago, of a portal in French. Its purpose is to oppose “The censorship of political correctness in the West, especially with regard to people with conservative, patriotic and Catholic opinions”. In several articles, the journalists, at the head of the tricolor version of Tysol, expressed their admiration for the ideas defended by Le Pen and Mr. Zemmour, broadly relaying their campaign themes.
