Thousands of Polish citizens took part in a 'Freedom March' - organised by the opposition Civil Platform (PO) party - on 6 May 2017 to protest at government's changes to Poland's justice and education systems.

The protest was held as polls suggested the Civil Platform was ahead of the government's Law and Justice for the first time in years.
