Opposition LMP members and supporters will take part in Saturday’s opposition demonstration in Heroes’ Square, moving on to Kossuth Square, an LMP official has said.

“All peaceful means must be seized in defiance of the slave law,” Máté Kanász-Nagy, the head of LMP’s national board, told a press conference in Budapest on Friday.

“We’re going to demonstrate in the capital and across the nation,” he said.

“We’re also prepared to block roads and may even call on employees to go on strike countrywide.”

Referring to recent amendments to the labour code which increases the amount of overtime that an employee can undertake, the LMP politician said the “slave law and the way it was adopted go to show the failure of the government’s economic and labour market policymaking.”

He said it was clear the government saw the country’s competitiveness tied to low-wage labour, while it had allied itself with the interests of foreign multinational companies such as car manufacturers.

As we wrote, opposition parties, civil organisations and trade unions held an anti-government protest in Szeged, in southern Hungary, yesterday, read more HERE.

  1. Are the opposition parties stupid or just brain dead??????? If they looked into the so called “Slave Law” and read into the reality, they would see that there is nothing wrong with it. Everything is true to form and allows employees to work the overtime that they want, earn overtime wages and collect there pay for overtime and wages every month as normal. What is the problem, and why all the concern from the opposition????
