I hope everyone is enjoying their day locked into the base, and didn't get caught up in the demonstrations. Made it to the hometown newspapers even.

I thought I heard on the radio this morning that the protests didn't end in Poland yesterday, and that the Army and Police were at odds over it. Anyone else hear this? I also haven't heard any alert status changes, so I guess it can't be that bad.

If I can get the time I'll transcribe it, or find a newspaper clipping and post it.

As of now the official position of the 315th RRC command is as follows:

Use caution when traveling not to become involved or appear to be involved with any protests. Accidental involvement can be misconstrued or deliberately used by the enemy as propaganda. 

Plan all road movements or delay to avoid delays/conflicts caused by protests.

If protest blocks access or restrict carrying out of duties withdraw 200M and contact 315th RRC for further instructions.  Do not follow any "orders or special instructions” that were heard of through rumors. When in doubt call higher for clarification.

It is imperative that all troops stay out of local politics and not make any statements to the press without official authorization.

Security personnel and those with special duties will receive special orders and guidelines concerning protection of equipment, life, and property. 

There is currently not an increase in the alert status.

As always use your head and don't be stupid.  If you have any questions please let your C-O-C know. 

Dylan Warnick
Commander 315th RRC

As promised, a newspaper clipping about the Polish unrest. Hope this goes well for them. I'd hate to be on alert for Thanksgiving.



Also be sure to scroll right. Romanians getting all uppity also.

And I just got this from some guys down the hall. Not sure if it's the one referred to in the article, but photos can speak a lot of truth.



Supposedly, that's a bus of protester being escorted by the army, but that part is impossible to tell from the photo. Could be anything.

Things just got worse. I guess hardliners have cracked down and Polish democracy is over. Hopefully it won't spread. Thank god there weren't serious protests in Berlin, or we'd apparently be looking over the fence at Soviet tanks shooting people.

Sorry the article is so large, but the news from the Gulf also seems important for everyone to remember. Scroll right to see the info from Poland.

Seems these protests haven't gone well. And no one is ready for a revolution, as (except for the Poles) they backed down when the Russian tanks rolled in.

See sidebar. That's all the coverage eastern europe gets in the US anymore. Especially with, apparently, an impending mid-east war.
