Opposition lambasted for its 23 October demonstrations

October 26th, 2023

A pro-government news site condemns opposition demonstrators for their ’unserious’ behaviour on the anniversary of the 1956 revolution.

Origo describes pro-government commemorations of the  revolution as dignified and responsible, but brands opposition demonstrations on the day as ’meaningless rants’. The report finds the Momentum demonstrators’ gesture of pouring red paint on the metal rails in front of the Prime Minister’s office ’pitiful’ and describes the main opposition demonstration in Budapest as ’pathetic’. They could only assemble a few hundred people, Origo writes, and condemns those demonstrators who insulted a reporter of the state TV news channel by pouring water on him.
