Workers will gain political power and democratic governance.



Dissidents : Workers
Amidst hardship from an increasing national debt, rising food prices and stagnating waves, labor unions began to form in Poland during the 1970s. Solidarity emerged in 1980 when several unions merged together and gained acknowledgement from the communist government with the signing of the GdaƄsk Agreement. The movement brought together a broad range of political opinions, from members of the Catholic church to the anti-Soviet Left, in solidarity against the communist regime.
The movement gained unprecedented support across the country and eventually participated in the Roundtable Talks of 1989 which led to the country's freedom from communism and the establishment of a democratic government.
