All Different All Equal, Warsaw

Just arrived in Warsaw, still fighting against a jetlag, and we already went to two demonstrations.
Last weekend was very eventful here, with a Polish edition of 'All Different All Equal' and a so-called Manifa - a demonstration concerned mostly with women's rights but also supporting tolerance, respect for minorities, gay and lesbian rights, workers rights.. This demonstration-march takes place every March in major Polish cities, on or close to 8th, which is the International Women's Day.
We (a few thousand people) walked from a central place in the city - Palace of Science and Culture - to the Parliament building, it took two hours. (Fortunately, snow was gone by then and Aissa is holding me tight in her warm gloves.)
