As part of the Worldwide Demonstration May 15, 2021 against lockdowns and totalitarian measures being implemented using the coronavirus as the excuse, Ottawa held a rally and march on Parliament Hill where at least 2000 people attended.
Although the police would not allow attendees to use megaphones or Public Address systems, some people still did speak. One of them, a woman named Bojena who escaped from Poland when it was behind the Iron Curtain, attempted to address a noisy crowd.
She explained that her grandmother survived German concentration camps, and emphasized the importance of the Nuremberg Code, which stresses people must give consent to medical procedures.
In 1981, Bojena experienced Martial Law under communist dictator General Wojciech Jaruzelski in Poland. “We were beaten just to be on the street,” she said. After being arrested twice, she fled to Greece and made her way to Canada, where she thought she finally found freedom.
But now the Polish refugee sees policies and rhetoric that ultimately resulted in Martial Law in Poland taking place in Canada. “We’ve been there, we Polish people – we’ve been there – the entire communist block – we’ve seen what the communists are capable of doing,” she continued. “Please stand up before it’s too late,” Bojena said.
RAIR foundation USA managed to catch up with her after her speech and ask her to lay out her message to Canadians.
