CPK is a project to build an airport and 2 thousand. km of new railway lines. As part of the cycle of Civic Platform #1000 rallies, which had just ended, politicians argued that Poland did not need an ambitious investment (similar to the canal on the Vistula Spit, Via Carpatia or a dam on the border). Interestingly, by blocking a nice project, the PO is collaborating with activists from the compromised organization KOD and the radical AgroUnia.

Parliamentary elections are next year, so Donald Tusk instructed Civic Platform politicians to organize meetings with voters. According to guidelines by the end of June they would hold a thousand field meetings.
Tomasz Siemoniak, the deputy head of the Civic Platform (PO), estimated that they had 180 MPs, so if everyone organizes at least five meetings, they will already be close to a thousand. It is July 1 and the Platform is silent. Some internet users claim that the PO has not kept its promise, so it does not sum up the action.

“The land they want is yours”
– Investments such as CPK are needed for: rapid response to NATO’s eastern flank because of logistical capabilities and sufficient capacity, for example, judged the former commander of the US land forces in Europe, General Ben Hodges.

These arguments also do not reach Michał Kołodziejczak of AgroUnia. The activist also appeared at the protest of an activist from KOD and the Citizens’ Coalition. He urged farmers not to agree to accept replacement land or financial compensation.
– Do not forget an essential point. The land they want is yours – he shouted from the makeshift podium in front of the CPK headquarters in Warsaw. “We won’t give back, we won’t give back,” he sang more shouts.
“Radical alliance” – network users write about the protest of PO, KOD and AgroUnii.
Michał Kołodziejczak, like PO politicians, accused the government and the CPK company that they don’t listen to the voice of the residents and do not allow them to express their views on this matter publicly.

250 encounters with residents
“Almost 250 encounters with residents have taken place across Poland in the last 12 months alone, resulting in more than 60 thousand comments, opinions and suggested mileage corrections. In many cases we have taken this into account and revised our variants where possible,” they emphasize.
They add that this is not the first such situation, because in 2020 they almost gathered 160 thousand votes from residents and local government officials from 630 municipalities from different parts of Poland, consulting the project of the Strategic Location Study of the CPK.
The STH points out that the circles fighting the investment do not take into account the votes of hundreds of thousands of Poles from cities that do not have rail transport today, and thanks to STH they will leave the forbidden railway zone.

The company estimates that its investments will generate additional investment 130 thou. jobs in the first years of the operation of the Port of Solidarity, and in 2040 this number will increase to almost 300,000.
“Thanks to STH investments for almost 12 million Poles living in medium-sized cities the accessibility of the nearest long-distance train station to five minutes by car increases by almost a quarter (from 4.7 to 5.8 million people), and up to 10 minutes by 15%. (from 7.6 to 8.8 million people) ”- argue the representatives of the Central Communication Port.
