Banners on the Czech border ´I ja za tobą Polaku´ (I miss you too, Pole) and ´Chybíte nám Poláci!´ (We miss you Poles), March 2020 © Stefan Manka, Cieszyn, Poland

A spontaneous action took place March 20, 2020 across the Polish and Czech border. The cities of Cieszyn and Český Těšín, normally connected by bridges over the Olza river, were blocked by border controls. As a reaction to this, a group of Polish and Czech inhabitants made banners on both sides of the river with messages declaring that they missed each other.
