zadyma f

  1. A popular, widespread Polish slang name for any kind of street brawl. It is a very broad term and among others includes clashes between soccer hooligans, fights between police and various protesters such as anarchists; but also (for example): coal miners fighting for their union privileges. Nowadays the word zadyma is quite often used in mass media and has become part of the standard Polish language.
