There was a demonstration in front of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg organized by the HVIM French branch, a group of Hungarian Parliamentarians and French supporters of György Budaházy and the Hungarian Guard. The group handed in a petition to the European Court of Human Rights asking the judicial body to examine the case of Budaházy and the Hungarian Guard banned by the Gyurcsány regime.
At the demonstration, Tamás Gaudi-Nagy and Krisztina Morvai talked about human rights violations in Hungary including the plight of political prisoners and the case of the Hungarian Guard banned by the Gyurcsány regime on false charges. Meanwhile French supporters of the Hungarian cause distributed flyers written in several languages, informing onlookers about the human rights situation in Hungary.
In the petition to the Court of Human Rights, Tamás Gaudi-Nagy and Krisztina Morvai are asking the justice system to examine the politically motivated decision by the Hungarian court against the Hungarian Guard. Petitioners are also demanding one hundred thousand Euros compensation. According to Tamás Gaudi-Nagy, the appeal process to be completed might take two to three years.

Demonstration in front of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg for György Budaházy and the Hungarian GuardSunday, June 27, 2010
On Friday 25, the HVIM started a series of protest on the “Vértanúk tere” to draw attention to the plight of political prisoners still in jail. The attention-grabbing protest started by László Toroczkai, the founder of the HVIM. Standing in a cage, Toroczkai talked to the press about the profound disappointement of the patriotic movement by the new Fidesz government that still hasn’t released all political prisoners arrested by the Gyurcsány regime.
Currently, György Budaházy and Szaszka are still in jail for over a year on fake terrorism charges. Up until now, no evidence has been introduced in any of the cases against the detainees.
In the upcoming days, more human rights activist and members of the Hungarian resistance movement will join to the attention-gabbing protest. On Monday, Gyula Zagyva, the chief of the HVIM and on the following day, Tamás Gaudi Nagy will spend some time in the cage.

The talented Long Jumper Renáta Medgyes, in Dunaszerdahely has qualified for the European Athletics Championship in Barcelona, despite opposition by Slovakian sport officials. However, her participation in the prestigious sport event is in danger because she is not supported by any government agencies with a penny. Her parents are unemployed and are unable to finance her expenses for the tournament.
Renáta Medgyes is 27 years old and already won a silver medal 11 years ago, at the junior world championship.
Hungarians in ”Csallóköz” started a donation drive to raise funds that can cover the athlete’s expenses during the tournament.
