Polish opposition MPs block parliament over media freedom

Dozens of Polish MPs protested in parliament on Friday over plans to restrict journalists’ right to cover proceedings, as thousands of demonstrators marched outside in support for their stance. The demonstration at the gates of parliament in Warsaw was called by the KOD pro-democracy movement, which is critical of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party’s policies on media, education and the Constitutional Court. The restrictions planned by the conservative party grant access to the parliament’s press gallery to only two journalists per outlet, and ban them from shooting still pictures or video.
