Polish government took down critical articles at Washington Post

Polish government involved in covert PR of Białowieża Forest cutting

254

Polish lobbyists were involved in massive takedown operation to suppress critical views on the upcoming Białowieża Forest logging. The scale of this covert PR activity is really impressive. The article «NGOs urge Poland to stop extensive logging in old forest» has disappeared from the leading news magazines and prominent web sites. According to our information that was done by PR-agent hired by the Polish government.

The article was dedicated to the fate of ancient and unique Białowieża Forest. It cited Head of Greenpeace in Poland Robert Cyglicki who, among other NGOs leaders, fiercely opposes the savage chainsawing of the UNESCO World Heritage site. Meanwhile Polish government is cutting the Forest down at the unprecedented pace.

According to our information the average take down at the Washington Post usually costs around $70,000 per article when performed as a PR-service on commercial basis.

Sometimes it was substituted for another text but the permalink (a part of url ngos-urge-poland-to-stop-extensive-logging-in-old-forest) is clearly showing the forgery:

It should be noted that the overall covert PR operation of Polish government was performed on highest level. The usual traces of the text modification were hidden, Google Cache purged and so on. But it is at least naive to suppose that it can be completely hidden from the public.
