Participatory budgets seem to offer only benefits: citizens gain actual influence on their towns or districts, local authorities get to cooperate with them closer and many interesting civil projects have a chance to become real. No wonder such budgets have gained popularity all over the world – and recently also in Poland. But already, at the very beginning, the Polish civic budgets need some treatment. It is high time we considered where exactly we are going with this.
The Czechs and Slovaks recently commemorated the Warsaw Pact armies’ invasion of Czechoslovakia in August 1968. One controversy emerged. It was centered on one of the key figures of the Prague Spring, František Kriegel. The Czechs would like to make him a hero, but there is one “minor” flaw in his life. He was a communist and never ceased to be.
The end of August marks the 70th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising – seen as one of the most important events in the Czech and Slovak 20th century. Yet besides the well-established narrative of a heroic fight against fascism, we are again witnessing revisionist and openly manipulated interpretations of the event that aim to legitimize a fresh wave of nationalism. Thus the Uprising has once again served to the political agenda of the day.
