Poland Calls For August 31 Public Holiday

Polish Nobel-prize winning former leader of Solidarity, Lech Walesa, has made a repeated, and last-ditch, call to have August 31, the date of the historic 1980 agreement that legalized the Solidarity trade union, a new annual non-working public holiday in Poland.

The last new Polish non-working public holiday was Epipahny which was restored as a non-working public holiday in Poland two years ago (24-Sep-2010). Until then, Epiphany had been the only religious public holiday not been restored since Poland regained its independence in 1991, and had been the source of many petitions to have the public holiday restored (19-Apr-2009, 27-Jun-2008, 22-Sep-2008, and 17-Oct-2008).
