Thousands rallied in Poland's largest cities on Sunday against the ruling party's judicial reforms. The opposition said the new legislation would kill the judges' independence and undermine democracy. Late on Friday the country's parliament, where the Law and Justice (PiS) party has a majority, passed a bill giving parliament a greater say in appointing judges. Critics said the changes violate the constitutional separation of powers. The police estimated around 45 hundred people protested in Warsaw. The Warsaw city hall said the number was above 10 thousand.
