Unveiling the plaque in the presence of Ms. Veil herself

On Tuesday 30 August the European Parliament honoured two giants of post-war Europe, with the inauguration in Brussels of the "Solidarność 1980 Esplanade" and the "Simone Veil Agora". Ms Veil, the first president of the directly-elected EP in 1979, was present - as were Solidarność founder Lech Wałęsa and current EP President Jerzy Buzek, who was also part of the Polish workers movement.
