A demonstration organised by independent lawmaker Ákos Hadházy was held in front of the public media headquarters in Budapest on Friday evening.
The demonstration began with a minute of silence in honour of the revolutionaries of 1956.
Addressing the event, historian Krisztián Ungváry said “lies are not only told by spewing severe untruths” but also through questions, “fake national consultations, fake parties, a fake parliament and a thousand other means”.
Orsolya Varga, a teacher, said teachers had been deprived of their security, peace and freedom, which “have been replaced by lies, hate and intimidation”. She said it was now doubtful whether teachers could continue to make a living, adding that there was no future without teachers.
