The dream of Polish tech entrepreneurship is almost over
I’ve seen the ecosystem grow from a small, suspicious group of former cubicle warriors into a vibrant and exciting scene with multiple accelerators and funds vying for startups. Even the problem of capital seemed to be solved with the creation of a €630 million fund aimed directly at growth and innovation inside the country.
I saw the first inklings of a trouble when, at an event dinner in Krakow, a government official stood up and said, in translation, that he invited foreign startup experts to the country but warned, ominously, that he wanted to take their best ideas and innovate past them. This nationalist gumbo, while popular with the country’s aging post-Communist population, does nothing for the young entrepreneur who has to decide whether to stay in Warsaw, Wroclaw, or Krakow or simply leave to work for a tech giant in a more stable country.

French banks blithely financing the fracking industry
All, or nearly all, claim that they are sensitive to environmental concerns. This does not, however, stop French banks, most prominently Société Générale and BNP Paribas, from bankrolling natural gas fracking, an industry which has adverse effects on water resources, local communities, and the global climate. This is the conclusion of a study commissioned by Friends of the Earth Europe. The study details the source of investments and loans financing the oil and gas companies most active in (...)

KARCZEBY by Adam Panczuk
In one of the dialects spoken in the east of Poland, which is a mixture of Polish and Belorussian, people strongly attached to the soil they had been cultivating for generetations were called “Karczebs”. With their bare hands Karczebs cleared forests in order to grow crops. The word Karczeb was also used to describe what remains after a tree is cut down - a trunk with roots, which remains stuck in the ground. This also applied to people - it was not easy for the authorities to root them out from their land, even in the Stalinism times. The price they paid for their attachment to their soil was often their freedom or life. After death, hurried nearby their farmland, a Karczeb himself became the soil, later cultivated by his descendants.

Donc, les Allemands ont investi pour assimiler leurs territoires - ce qui explique que ces régions aient été favorisées en matière de constructions respectivement en avant 1918 et avant 1945. Mais pourquoi les régions jamais occupées par les Allemands sont favorisées après 1945 ? Sont-elles d’ailleurs favorisées, les régions auparavant influencées par l’Allemagne sont-elles dénigreées ou est-ce simplement le rattrapage des régions déjà dotées grâce à l’occupation Allemande ?
In the morning of the 2nd of June, 2013, under the protection of security guards, the American multinational Chevron took possession of a piece of land situated close to Zurawlow, Poland, in the Grabowiec concession. Chevron was coming to install all its equipment for shale gas development. Residents of nearby villages tried to intervene. This article was originally published in French by Basta!. Translated by Laura Voicu. A protester was injured by a vehicle belonging to the firm and was (...)
Dirty business in Warsaw | Corporate Europe Observatory
As the warm-up climate talks in Warsaw end, the message from the Polish government is clear: big companies get privileged access to negotiators, but NGOs are excluded.
Next month countries will gather in Warsaw for the latest round of climate negotiations but the exclusion of civil society, while business gets full access, has already begun at the warm-up talks, ending today (4th October 2013).
The UN climate talks, or COP19 (the 19th Conference of the Parties under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change – UNFCCC), will be presided over by the Polish government, and in particular the Polish Minister for Environment, Marcin Korolec (see picture, right).
Minister Korolec has been at pains to emphasise that the UN climate talks this year in Poland will be business-friendly. At a press conference on 15th September he said:
“For the first time in 19 years, since the climate talks have been held, representatives of global business will be a part of it"
So what does this mean? Future blog posts will investigate exactly what role the Polish government sees for business, and why some of the dirtiest corporations like ArcelorMittal (steel giant with severe impacts in many communities around the world and the company which has pocketed more assets than anyone else in the EU carbon market (the emissions trading scheme)), BMW (active lobbyists against car CO2 emission reductions) and Lotos, (Polish oil company promoting shale gas exploration), are official COP19 partners.
