2 June 1979 marked the beginning of Pope John Paul II’s first pilgrimage to Poland. Do you think that it contributed to the founding of the Solidarity movement a year later?

75%
Yes: impossible to hide, the mass participation of Poles in the religious celebrations offered a sense of unity and strength without which the overwhelming support for the August 1980 strikes and Solidarity coming into existence as a result would have been possible.
25%
No: the August 1980 strikes had mainly economical and not political grounds.
