Gdansk Shipyard: The fight against Lenin is not over

Only five days after the President of Gdansk decided to dismantle the inscription “Solidarity” covering a word “Lenin” on II Gate of the Gdansk Shipyards the inscription came back and covers again the name of communistic criminal.

A fight about the appearance of the historical place keeps on going. A company contracted by the local Council have had to remove the inscription “Solidarity” twice. Will they do it again?

“The Council – as the gate’s owner will continue contracting dismantling possible inscriptions covering the word “Lenin”– explained the Gdansk’s President Speaker, Antoni Pawlak.

Let us remind that the City of Gdansk decided to renovate the Gate bringing back appearance it had in August 1980. In the mid June 2012 the former inscription "Gdansk Shipyards S.A." was replaced with “Lenin’s Gdansk Shipyards”. That change caused protests coming from the local Solidarity Union; Gdansk’s inhabitants organised a competition of throwing eggs at Lenin, and "unidentified individuals”– as they were described – covered the word "Lenin" with the word "Solidarity", which remained there during the Euro 2012 games. It looked as if the City Hall accepted the fact that “Lenin” would not be displayed, although shortly after the Euro 2012 ended the President decided to remove the inscription again.

The game is the ongoing one. "Solidarity" activists supported by the Law and Justice MPs are using heavy weapons now. They established an open committee on President Adamowicz's dismissal and started collecting signatures for a referendum on this case.

I whould join in if I were in Gdansk.
I`m not a Pole though.
It seems logical to me, that Lenin whould be treeated in Poland as he is in Finland.
After all he was the one who made Russian revolution and in so doing, had given a chance to Poland for independece.
If Russia were among the winners in 1918 Poland whould go to Russia. You know winners don`t lose their territory.

Lenin was an imbecile, followed by the biggest criminal Stalin.
Subsequently, half of Europe was brought into dark ages.

It seems that the Poles have problems with logical way of thinking.

Carrying out their aggression on Poland in 1920, Bolsheviks literally treated the motto of Prime Minister of the Russian Government and a communist dictator Lenin:‘Let’s go forward to the West! Let’s go over the corpse of Poland to the heart of Europe!’
