5,000 protest against gov’t, new demo planned

Analysis

More than 5,000 joined an anti-government demonstration organized by Facebook page “MostMi!” Friday in front of the Hungarian Opera House in Budapest, on then the third anniversary of one of the first mass demonstrations against the current government – a protest against the new constitution held on January 2, 2012. 

Another demonstration is being organized on January 10 by another Facebook page, in protest of planned restrictions on freedom of assembly.

Anti-government demonstrations of tens of thousands people, and in one case 100,000, began on October 26, with opposition to a proposed internet tax, which was since abandoned by the government. Demonstrators have since made it clear that they have a multitude of problems with the current leadership.
