Three people accused of hanging LGBT rainbow flags off statues in Warsaw have been arrested and charged. Polish police charged them with desecrating monuments and offending religious feelings. Activists protesting against the anti-LGBT policies of President Andrzej Duda hung the flags off statues of Jesus Christ, the astronomer Copernicus and the Warsaw mermaid. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki denounced the activists, saying the statues symbolize values that are important to millions of Poles. However, activists who were part of the demonstrations said they were protesting against the homophobic ideology of governing officials.
