Poles Protest Against Anti-piracy LawsTens of thousands of young Poles hit city streets across the country in a mounting wave of offline and online protest against a government decision to sign an international anti-online piracy accord.

Poland, an ex-communist state which joined the European Union in 2004, has committed to signing ACTA on Thursday.

A protest by thousands organised largely via Facebook in the central Polish city of Kielce on Wednesday turned violent when some protesters trashed cars and attacked police, the commercial TVN24 news channel reported. Protesters also turned out for anti-ACTA rallies in Wroclaw, Szczecin, Olsztyn and Bialystok.
