TODAY: great anti-government demonstration in Budapest (+ road closures)

The organizers want to launch a demonstration wave and disobedience movement. Well-known speakers will be, but they will not betray who they want to surprise. The Fidesz Moonstroke sees violence and Bolshevist-Communist counter-revolution, but the organizers emphasize: they are preparing for a peaceful demonstration. Opposition parties call their supporters for participation and national resistance.

We are the majority! – Demonstration for Democracy will be a demonstration on Saturday afternoon in Budapest. In the morning of Friday morning, 33,000 people reported that they were leaving and an additional 81,000 people joined Facebook.

Recount the votes!

Instead of a hatred campaign, free press, unbiased public media!

Fair Choice! New election law!

Do not fight with the opposition, but stand for the majority!

One of the organizers of the demonstration, Gergely Homonnay (he edits Erzsi’s side of the cat) told the Index that it was a party-independent event, one of the main organizers of the demonstration, “as it turned out, voted for every other opposition party.”

According to Homonnay, the demonstration is organized to show “we are more”. Their purpose with the Saturday event is to raise a demonstration wave. They want to launch a civic disobedience movement, but you do not want to talk about it for the moment. He said so: they do not want to block people’s everyday life, so it’s not about keeping them busy for a long time.
