Poland: massive protests going on for days

This photo was taken on Saturday in Warsaw, when the protests were already in their fourth day:

Surprisingly I had got no word of these massive demonstrations, affecting a major European country before today and I swear I have been watching the news in several channels, what says very little in favor of our so-called "free media" (corporate and state, extremely authoritarian and antidemocratic, and usually also boring, media).

The trigger has been the labor law reform, together with the already rampaging unemployment and underemployment. Another issue is the retirement age, moved to the age of 67. 

The protesters demand the resignation of PM Donald Tusk.
