Semi-protecting the articleEdit

I see there have been many acts of vandalism recently. I think it might be a good idea to semi-protect this article. 62.233.223.132

There is no martial law in Poland however.Edit

This phrase has been removed with a comment "no shit". There is no martial law in Poland however, so the Committee misuses the "resistor" symbol the same like some Polish nationalist misuse Polish anti-Nazi symbol Kotwica.Xx236 (talk) 08:10, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

POV - KOD follows the tradition of the former anti-communist Workers' Defence CommitteeEdit

Workers' Defence Committee was illegal in a Communist country, the Committee for the Defence of Democracy does what it wants.

belonged to Founding members, now they are in the PiS administration.Xx236 (talk) 09:19, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

actions taken by the governing party, the first party - not trueEdit

The Law and Justice is supported by at least two small parties Poland Together and Solidarity for Poland, represented by a dozen of deputes, who belong to the LaJ fraction (club). Xx236 (talk) 07:18, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

KOD follows the tradition ?Edit

KOR helped prisoners and persecuted people, it didn't organize mass protests.Xx236 (talk) 07:52, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Guardian plagiarized this articleEdit

So, am I right to see that this Feb 26 article has copied verbatim from Committee for the Defence of Democracy "became the first party in post-communist Polish history to control an absolute majority of the seats in the Polish Parliament and the Presidency at the same time. While the protest movement has taken issue with a number of PiS-sponsored initiatives"? Damn, even top tier publications have no standards if they copy stuff like that. Sigh. PS. Moonriddengirl agrees with me: User_talk:Moonriddengirl#The_Guardian_plagiarizing_us.3F. There is probably a template for that. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:41, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

SupportersEdit

The phrase Many politicians, especially Ryszard Petru, presented their critiques of the government doesn't say anything about supporting KOD. Not only the KOD criticises the government.Xx236 (talk) 11:15, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

I agree this is generic and can be removed. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:49, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

The CoalitionEdit

I don't know if the Coalition [1] works but it seems that Grzegorz Schetyn doesn't support the KOD.Xx236 (talk) 06:50, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

SupportersEdit

This is a selection and there is always a question - why these people?
Krystyna Janda's theater was financially supported by the former government and obtained about 10% only this year. Does it make Janda neutral?Xx236 (talk) 06:56, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

POVEdit

The text misinforms, it present's KOD's POV only.

The destruction of the Tribunal was started by Platforma Obywatelska, who nominated five judges.
240 000 is a pro-KOD estimate.
KOD was supported by "Gazeta Wyborcza", the biggest Polish daily at that time.Xx236 (talk) 06:59, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Le Monde didn't vist Warsaw to understand Polish problesm, it publishes opinions of a former Wyborcza internet edition journalist Jakub Iwaniuk (and Maja Żółtowska).Xx236 (talk) 07:07, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
