Some 25 000 people rallied in Gdansk on Sunday to voice their support for the former president and the hero of anti-communist movement Solidarity Lech Walesa, who has recently faced allegations that he acted as a communist secret service agent.

Walesa is renowned worldwide for negotiating a bloodless end to communism in Poland in 1989. The move triggered the country’s first democratic elections since World War II, ushering Walesa into the presidency a year later.
