Soros-funded NGO targets Poland’s elections

The Polish organization Do:Łącz, which translates to “Join Us,” is campaigning for abortion on-demand, boycotting goods and services from Poland’s energy giant Orlen, reducing the consumption of meat, and fighting for rights for transsexuals.

The NGO was set up by a mystery company, “To Amplify App OÜ,” which is registered in Tallinn, Estonia, and specializes in data collection and voter profiling. It is owned by Hungarian Tibor Dessewffy, who has close ties to billionaire oligarch George Soros and the Hungarian opposition. 

Dessewffy is well known in Hungary, where he heads the Demos think tank. He is also no stranger to the world of Brussels. He is a key figure in the European Council for Foreign Relations (ECFR), which is a not-for-profit body funded by the Open Society Foundations, an organization founded by Soros. 

The Estonian company owned by Dessewffy was responsible for the Hungarian opposition’s big data-driven campaigning during the Hungarian election in 2022. He is a close associate of former socialist Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany, who founded the “Democratic Coalition,” and Gordon Bajnai, who replaced Gyurcsany after his resignation.

It is likely that the experience gained during the election campaigns in Hungary will now be used to assist the opposition in Poland. According to Polish electoral law, it is illegal for election campaigns to be funded by foreign sources, which is why the Polish organization “Do:Łącz” has been set up.

The ECFR think tank has highly influential Polish politicians sitting on its board. The most prominent are former Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski and the current Warsaw mayor and presidential candidate for the liberal PO in 2020, Rafał Trzaskowski. However, former EU Commissioner Danuta Hubner is also a member, as is Katarzyna Pełczyńska-Nałęcz, who was Poland’s ambassador to Russia and is currently working with the “Poland 2050” party led by former independent presidential candidate Szymon Hołownia.
