Civil Union Forum: Commitment to national independence is the main message of next week’s Peace March
The main message of the Peace March to be organised by the pro-government Civil Union Forum (COF) on the March 15 national holiday will be the marchers’ support for and commitment to national independence, COF founder László Csizmadia said on Friday.
The march will set off from Bem József square and proceed along Nyugati square and Alkotmány street before joining the state celebration at Kossuth square, Csizmadia told a press conference.
“The warm-hearted Hungarian and Polish marchers” will be marching behind a banner quoting the line “Homeland before all else” from poet Ferenc Kölcsey, he said.
Csizmadia said COF had long been preparing to organise a Peace March. Now the NGO “feels it is time” to demonstrate how big a majority “Hungarian national forces” hold, he added.
COF last organised a Peace March in 2014.
