A protester seen holding a placard with Virgin Mary picture during the demonstration.
Protesters gathered in the centre of Warsaw to show their solidarity with Elzbieta Podlesna, a street opposition activist who was arrested on suspicion of offending religious sentiment, after posters bearing an image of the Virgin Mary with her halo painted in the colours of the rainbow flag appeared in the city of Pock in central Poland. The Polish interior minister, Joachim Brudziski, announced on Twitter on Monday that a person had been arrested for carrying out a profanation of the Virgin Mary of Czstochowa and also called this act as cultural barbarism.
