Thousands of Polish labor union members marched through Warsaw in the rain Wednesday Sept. 11, 2013, sounding sirens and blowing whistles in a protest against government labor policy and pension system reform and to demand higher pay.

The march was the first of four days of protests planned in the city by Solidarity, the OPZZ union — the country's largest — and smaller labor organizations. City officials said 10,000 marched from various ministries, where they left lists with their demands, to parliament, where they rallied and set a tire alight.(Associated Press)
