Solidarność’s contacts established with social and political movements in the Third World were rather limited and highly selective. Solidarność only embraced causes that were instrumental to its international profile. It reluctantly sided with the anti-apartheid struggle. It also avoided explicitly anti-communist groups. This became not only clear in its reluctance to side with the anti-Sandinista opposition in Nicaragua, but also in its collaboration with the left-wing opposition from Chile. In this way, Solidarność could universalise its cause, defy the Cold War bipolarity, and demonstrate that it was part of a general anti-totalitarian struggle.
