Warsaw, Poland, Jun 20, 2005 / 22:00 pm
Thousands of Polish youth marched through the streets of Warsaw June 18, demonstrating against special rights for homosexuals. The so-called "Normal Parade" was organized in response to a recent "gay pride" event in the city, reported WorldNetDaily.com.
League of Polish Families leader and member of Parliament Roman Geirtych told marchers that Poland must build its future based on the family and not on "pederasts."
A left-wing group, called Stop Fascism, held a small counter demonstration, heckling at the pro-family marchers. However, there were no incidents of violence. A heavy police cordon separated the two groups.
The League for Polish Families is also on the campaign trail. The Catholic country will head to the polls Sept. 25 for parliamentary elections and Oct. 9 for a presidential election.
