    > Warsaw, Poland – Judges from across Europe have joined Polish peers, lawyers and members of the public as they marched in silence to protest against what they describe as the systematic erosion of judicial independence by Poland's government.

    > The office of Warsaw's mayor said some 30,000 people took part in Saturday's march to denounce a bill that would allow the Law and Justice government to discipline judges who question its judicial changes.

    > Judges from more than 20 other European countries, many wearing judicial robes over their thick winter coats, carried placards with their countries' names.
