Hungary will celebrate tomorrow the 65th anniversary of the 1956 revolution and freedom fight. More than six decades before, the Communist regime collapsed in Hungary thanks to the people, mostly the young workers and students. The first protests started at the universities, where the students demanded freedom of speech, the rule of law and wanted the Soviet troops to leave Hungary.
The Rákóczi Szövetség (Rákóczi Alliance) commemorates every October 22 that heroic fight of the Hungarian youth with a march, the so-called ‘Gloria victis (Glory of the victims). Here are some photos of today’s march:
