About the Organisation
The Archive of Public Protests brings together visual traces of social activism, and grassroots initiatives opposing not just political decisions but also breaches of democratic norms and human rights. It is a collection of images that constitutes a warning against rising right-wing populism and discrimination in the broadest sense of the term: xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny, and also the climate crisis. In establishing the Archive, its creators wish to prolong the life of their images, which are connected with specific events, and whose existence ends with their publication in the press. The APP gathers together photographs in a single, easily accessible collection, which will remain accessible to researchers, educators, artists, and activists. Additionally, the use of the Archive’s resources will be open to all users who express a desire to communicate the values with which its creators identify.
Between 2020 and 2021 A-P-P has launched 6 issues of the Strike Newspaper a spontaneous publication with protesters’ slogans, testimonies, and photos by the A-P-P members and invited photographers. Almost 30 000 copies of the Strike Newspapers dedicated to women’s rights, LGBTQ+ community rights, climate change, Belarusian diaspora protests and humanitarian crisis at the Poland-Belarus border have been distributed for free at the protests in Poland and abroad.
