Demo to celebrate internet tax victory
The Facebook group that organized two marches against the internet tax called for a demonstration at József Nádor tér at 6 pm this evening, to celebrate Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's decision to delay the tax. Two previous demonstrations this week brought as many as 100,000 to the square, and appear to have caused Orbán's change of heart.
"Mr. Orbán admitted his defeat in Kossuth Radio. … We are celebrating victory this evening at József Nádor tér," said a press release from the group. "We will keep the community of engaged citizens connected and alive to make sure we can act on any breach."
The Facebook page for tonight's event can be found here.
