Some 300 people gathered in central Budapest to protest against government policies on Sunday evening.

Márta Pardavi, co-leader of the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, said that “people of morals must take responsibility for society” and added that her organisation would boycott the recent law requiring registration of groups receiving foreign assistance. She said the Committee was ready to prove in court that the government’s “system of national cooperation” was illegitimate.

Political Scientist Gábor Vágó said that civil society should “recapture public life” before next year’s election, and “reorganise society along actual goals rather than along ideologies”. He insisted that civil candidates should be fielded in all 106 individual constituencies.
