Polish Socialist Party – Freedom, Equality, Independence

Polish Socialist Party – Freedom, Equality, Independence (Polish: Polska Partia Socjalistyczna - Wolność, Równość, Niepodległość, abr. PPS-WRN) was an underground political party in occupied Poland during World War II continuing the traditions of Polish Socialist Party.

PPS-WRN was formed soon after the official freeze of PPS activities in September 1939. At the end of World War II, the name PPS was contested by PPS-WRN and the pro-communist Workers Polish Socialist Party (Robotnicza Partia Polskich Socjalistów). Eventually in 1947, most top PPS-WRN activists were arrested by Polish secret police, Urząd Bezpieczeństwa; the remains ceased political activity, emigrated or joined the communist party.

Its military formations included Gwardia Ludowa WRN and the Workers' Militia PPS-WRN.
