Around a quarter million Poles flooded central Warsaw Saturday, marching to "protect" their country's place in the European Union and protest against moves by its right-wing government, which they insist undermine democracy

Warsaw city hall said the protest drew some 240,000 people, making it one of the largest demonstrations since the 1989 collapse of communism in Poland.
