Budapest, October 23 (MTI) – Anti-government demonstrators gathered near Budapest’s Kossuth Square to try to disturb state celebrations marking Hungary’s anti-Soviet uprising of 1956 on Sunday afternoon in Budapest.
The protesters used referee whistles, horns and rattlers to express their disapproval of the government and got louder when Prime Minister Viktor Orbán went up on stage to deliver his speech.
The protesters mainly consisted of supporters of the opposition Együtt party and members of the Civil Opposition Roundtable and the Democratic Resistance civil groups.
Several scuffles broke out between demonstrators and those who were there for the celebrations.
Once a communist always a communist. The communists protesters do not honor the heroes of 1956. The protesters are probably the ones who cheered on the execution of Mr. Nagy and all the young man the country lost. I do not believe that communism allows for patriotism.
People who behave badly are upset because they miss their dictatorship and a good living without any work.
