Poland and Europe's Refugee Crisis

Poland hosted demonstrations both for and against Europe's invitation for mass Muslim immigration. From the press accounts I've read, the anti-demonstrations had about six thousand demonstrators, and the pro-demonstrations had about a thousand demonstrators. If you have other figures, please share them. 

I found the photos, below, on the web.

Of course demonstrators are using Polish history in their appeals. 

The pro-camp say that Poles were once refugees themselves, and they should show "solidarity" with migrants. 

The anti-camp say that Poland has been invaded before, and Poland should not allow itself to be invaded again. 

This is from Czech Republic or Slovakia
