Poland is running an ad campaign to counter the propaganda being churned out by the refugee drama “Green Border,” which “shows a family from Syria and a woman from Afghanistan thrown back and forward across the border by brutal guards indifferent to their suffering, as activists struggle to try to bring them to safety.” Poland’s view is that the propaganda film “dishonours those who are protecting their country.”
How about a film that shows Saudi Arabia firing guns and explosive weapons, killing hundreds of Ethiopian genuine refugees at the Yemen border last month? Turkey has done the same. In 2016, Turkish authorities were also shooting at asylum seekers to keep them out. In 2018, Turkey was again shooting at refugees to keep them out. And in 2021, Turkey fortified over 600 miles of its land border with walls to keep out Afghans.
Days ago, Poland warned the EU that it must close its borders in the face of a “migrant surge,” pointing out the crisis on the Italian island of Lampedusa that saw between 5-6 thousand African migrants arrive on 100 boats.
WARSAW Reuters, September 21, 2023:
Poland’s government plans to run adverts ahead of some screenings of the prize-winning refugee drama “Green Border” to defend its treatment of migrants crossing the frontier from Belarus, a minister said on Thursday.
Directed by veteran Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Holland, the film has drawn a furious response from conservatives in Poland ahead of its release in Polish cinemas on Friday.
The black-and-white film shows a family from Syria and a woman from Afghanistan thrown back and forward across the border by brutal guards indifferent to their suffering, as activists struggle to try to bring them to safety.
Migration has emerged as a main campaign theme ahead of the closely-contested Oct. 15 elections, with the nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) saying only its government can ensure border security.
It says the film’s depiction of what happens to migrants crossing into Poland from the east dishonours those who are protecting their country.
Deputy interior minister Blazej Pobozy called the film “disgusting slander”.
“In arthouse cinemas throughout Poland, screenings will be preceded by a special ad about elements missing in the film”, he told reporters.
“Our ads shows the context of the hybrid (border) operation and the course of this operation and what solutions we have introduced to secure the safety of Polish women and men.”….
