    In our country, there is no room or tolerance for xenophobia, sick nationalism or anti-Semitism. Such attitudes will lead to exclusion from our society, President Andrzej Duda said Monday, commenting on racist incidents at Saturday's Independence March in Warsaw.

    "In our country there is no room or tolerance for xenophobia, in our country there is no room for sick nationalism, in our country there is no room for anti-Semitism. Such attitudes mean the exclusion from our society. People who behave in this way (...) display an attitude which can only be branded as shameful", President Duda said.

     

    In Poland, people are aware what Nazism is, what hate is, along with the murder of people for belonging to one nation rather than the other; we learned that lesson with our own blood, Polish President said in Krapkowice (southwest Poland).

     

    The president said he was worried by the injustice of foreign media "trying to make Nazis out of 40 or 60 thousand participants of the Independence March".

     

    "In Poland, people know perfectly well what Nazism means, what hate is, along with the murder of people for belonging to one nation rather than the other".
