United Kingdom -Polish migrants protest and give their blood -August 20, 2015

Polish people working in Britain have organised their first ever migrant workers actions in the UK in two contrasting ways: some Polish workers planned to down tools in a daylong strike and head to a demonstration at Westminster, while others intended to donate their blood to the NHS in a gesture laden with historic symbolism. The protest, on 20 August, was the result of discussions on Polish internet forums by people angry at immigrants being blamed for Britain's economic problems.
