Several Polish municipalities have announced that they plan to sue a group of activists who created an “Atlas of Hate” map, depicting municipalities covering one-third of the territory of Poland that had passed resolutions that activists argue discriminate against LGBT people. The conservative legal group Ordo Iuris, which will offer legal assistance to the municipalities, announced the lawsuit on Tuesday during a press conference in Warsaw. Representatives of at least seven municipalities were present, indicating that they would file the defamation lawsuit, although a final list of participating municipalities has not been made public yet. The map created by the activists says almost 100 Polish municipalities have adopted resolutions that are either “against LGBT ideology” or “pro-family”, which the activists say are “discriminatory” against LGBT people.
