Polish musician Kazik's song, “Your Pain is Better Than Mine,” topped a renowned music chart on Poland’s public radio station, Radio Three, last week. The song is widely seen as criticizing the head of Poland's ruling nationalist party. Its lyrics are about grieving and the lockdown of the nation's cemeteries during the coronavirus outbreak. But a few minutes after the song’s #1 slot was announced, the radio station allegedly deleted the song from their website. Now it’s being accused of censorship.
