This year's Peace Patrol briefing was unique in that it coincided with the 78th anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising. What started 78 years ago a brutal struggle, the validity of which is still disputed, today inaugurates the work of a group that has Peace in its name.
The Peace Patrol briefing is always a special moment for all volunteers. Meeting in front of the Main Stage, Jurek's speech and a joint photo is the beginning of Peace Patrol’s work at the Festival.
This year's briefing had a symbolic significance – the first of August is the date of the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising. And although the events of that period still arouse many extreme emotions, it is a fragment of our common history of fighting for Poland. A history that will remain permanently in our hearts. That is why we are keen to honour the memory of all the patriots, both men and women, who were ready to fight for our country and freedom.
The values that guide our event – Pol'and'Rock Festival – have always been associated with love and peace. This year we want to emphasise our opposition to war, hence this year's slogan – NO WAR!
This is the message of our Festival, because we don’t forget that there is a war going on next to us, but let’s also not forget that we don’t want to incite any wars.
Let’s remember people who experienced war and paid the ultimate price. Let’s also remember those who today are struggling with the nightmare of war in Ukraine. Let’s remember those who are fighting every day, just as our compatriots fought 78 years ago. Let’s do everything to stop this vicious circle of history.
