Prague, September 28 (MTI) – A crowd of some 500-600 people representing Czech civil groups gathered in front of the Hungarian embassy in Prague on Monday to hold a demonstration in support of the Hungarian government’s handling of Europe’s migrant crisis.
The Hungarian government is trying to preserve Europe and European traditions based on Christianity and Greco-Roman culture, the demonstrators said.
“Hungarians in the past defended Europe from the Ottoman Turks, and were once again among the first to stand up for Europe and its values by trying to stem the flow of illegal migrants onto our continent,” Pavel Skacel, an official at the Institute of Slavonic Strategic Studies (ISSTRAS), said.
Demonstrators were chanting “Thank you! Thank you!” and “Orban! Orban”, police said.
