Over 100 demonstrate for European unity, against nationalism in Budapest
Over 100 people gathered on Saturday in Budapest’s Szabadság square to demonstrate against nationalism and for European unity.
Addressing the crowd carrying EU flags, journalist Ferenc Gerlóczy said that sister demonstrations were being held simultaneously in over forty European cities in 13 countries from Belarus to Portugal.
Standing up for democratic values and against nationalism is important in all of Europe but even more so in central Europe, Eszter Nagy of the Hungarian branch of the Union of European Federalists said.
For a relatively small country such as Hungary, a strong and united EU is the best way to represent its interests, she said.
