After knife attack: Fear of Gdansk mayor

Hours of gdańsk mayor Adamowicz was operated in the night. Because time is considered critical, there is a growing hope that he survived. Politicians urge to let violence escalate.

mayor Pawel Adamowicz was only withdrawn hours before the attack on his life by Danzig, in order to collect itself for the donations, works "Great orchestra of festive help"; the pictures he published on the Internet. At the evening fundraiser, the mayor was once more the spirit of solidarity is invoked, the gdańsk so much embossing, with other Sparklers lit, as he was just stabbed to the culmination of the Gala on the stage.

Now the mayor himself is in the centre of spontaneous solidarity. For five hours he was in surgery that night. Since the first hours can thus be regarded as crucial to grow in the hopes that he survives. Already in the Morning, queues formed in front of the delivery points for donor blood.

"You must do what you can. We can donate and pray and blood, nothing more," said one of the Waiting. Another woman appealed to the people to do the same: "I feel great solidarity and I think that all those who can donate, should come here," he says. "The blood is very important for the mayor. Come if you can."

just before the fact: Adamowicz (right) stands on the stage of the gala.

Against the price of the national conservative government

newly re-elected Adamowicz comes from the largest Polish opposition party PO, he is. The liberal camp he is nevertheless expects; he is one of the most high-profile local politicians in Poland. Again and again he turned against the course of the national-conservative government in Warsaw. That the alleged perpetrator articulated after the fact for revenge against the PO, could nature have an impact on the political climate in the country marked by sharp clashes - but so far only verbal.

The PiS party spokeswoman Beata, known for the sharp words said: "of Course, we should now consider how our debate looks like. The less Aggression and mutual accusations, the greater the Chance that we are normal and such situations do not occur."

gdańsk Vice-the mayor called the action politically or ideologically exploit. "I would like to urgently call on to banish aggression from everyday life and from politics once and for all," she said. "The violence can't escalate. I know that if the Lord could talk to the mayor, he would say exactly that."

criticism of private security services

the organizer of The fundraiser, Jerzy Owsiak, in a first emotional reaction, the three years of the PiS government made indirectly responsible for the fact that these repeated allegations. Owsiak, who has hosted for years, the open-air spectacle "bus-stop Woodstock" close to the German border, is now expected to be again criticized for its security concepts.

Many observers described an indecisive and unprofessional approach of the used private security services allowed the alleged perpetrators even after the fact, for a while unmolested. "Unfortunately, this is a weakness in many concerts in Polenn: The poor quality of private security company," said the former police spokesman Mariusz Sokolowski. "The police can't be everywhere, and for the safety of the operator is, first and foremost, the responsibility of using private companies."

Despite some fierce verbal clashes there has been in modern Poland, as yet, hardly any cases of violence against politicians. In 2010, a man died in a RAID on an office of the national-conservative PiS party in łódź. The to life imprisonment, convicted offenders had to originally party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski to kill.
