“The situation with the Supreme Court is a bit as if here, at the Przystanek Woodstock, Jurek Owsiak tried to determine what should be happening at the festival”, said Commissioner for Human Rights Adam Bodnar while speaking with judge Jarosław Gwizdak during the “Academy of Truly Fine Arts” at the 23rd edition of the Przystanek Woodstock festival held in Kostrzyń nad Odrą. The conversation concerned, among others, the judicial system reform and citizens’ communication with the justice system.
Adam Bodnar and the CHR Office employees opened a stand called “Human Rights Tent” offering numerous workshops, lectures, competitions and educational games. There was also a court trial simulation and, at all times, legal advice was provided by a lawyer from the CHR Office.
The tent’s guests included representatives of numerous institutions and non-governmental organizations, e.g. from the Warsaw District Bar Association, Court Watch Foundation, Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights and Watchdog Polska Civic Network.
The Commissioner also opened a football tournament named “Let’s kick racism off football stadiums”.
