Next anti-government demo set for Thursday
Another anti-government march is planned for Thursday at 6 p.m., and will start outside the Parliament building at Kossuth tér and proceed to the Castle District. As of Monday morning, more than 5,500 people had signed up to go on a Facebook page for the event.
This protest, called "Our country! Our money!" is being held in objection to corruption, especially in the tax authority, but it is organized by people behind several of the recent demonstrations that have rocked the government, forcing officials to scrap plans for an internet tax and coinciding with Fidesz's lowest popularity rating in years, according to opinion polls.
These marches have drawn a crowd of people demonstrating about a range of issues with the government, and they have tended to be more about general dissatisfaction rather than any single issue.
