Tens of thousands of protesters hit the streets of the Polish capital Warsaw Saturday to rally against moves by the rightwing Law and Justice government that they say undermine the rule of law.In late July, the European Commission handed Warsaw a three-month deadline to reverse the changes to the top court or face sanctions for breaching EU norms on the rule of law and democracy.Without a satisfactory response in three months, the Commission, the European Parliament or a group of 10 member states can propose Poland be stripped of its voting rights in EU institutions if it is guilty of serious and persistent breaches of the rule of law.
