Abba comes together to combat homophobia from the Polish President

From The Local - Sweden's News in English comes a report that Abba have come together for the first time in a decade to sign memorabilia for auction in support of gays in Poland and the money raised will go to Warswaw Pride, badly in need of support after the attacks on it by Poland's President, Lech Kaczynski, who last summer banned gay pride celebrations in Warsaw.

Funnily enough I referred to another protest against President Kaczynski just a few days ago during a visit he was making to Berlin to speak at a university conference, and it is good to see that life is being made as difficult as possible for him - naturally as the President of an EU member nation he must be given a certain amount of 'respect', I suppose, but he must not be allowed to forget what membership of this organisation requires - freedom and equality for all EU citizens, and that includes Polish citizens!!
