About ten thousand people demonstrated near the parliament building to express their “outrage” over the internet tax introduced by the government a few days ago. The demonstration has been organized by atlanticist groups and other liberal assets on Facebook. A few dozens of agitated individuals - some of them wearing masks - threw rocks, computer monitors and other objects at the Fidesz headquarters making considerable damage to the building. The video shows some of the actions at the Fidesz headquarters. Please note that those stormed the headquarters displayed the EU flag on the balcony of the building, which says it all.
US embassy charge d'affaires Andre Goodfriend also took part in demonstration writes András Bencsik the co-founder of the Peace March and chief editor of the newspaper Demokrata on Facebook; he added that the US Embassy official attended the rally to demonstrate that the US is willing to use a Maidan style bloody scenario if needs be to remove the Orbán government.
The USA is not our friend and not even our ally. America (USA) is an empire that is only looking at its own interests to maintain its leading position in world affairs.
The US ignored Hungarian interests after the first and second world wars and didn't help us during the 1956 Hungarian uprising writes Bencsik.
Hir TV reporter Attila Császár whose crew was harassed at Fidesz headquarters by violent elements planted among the demonstrators said: "I felt that those attacked the building have been organized, but who they were and why they did it, or weather they belonged to the people rallied against the Internet tax, I can not tell". I didn't see football fans; the troublemakers who broke the windows of the party headquarters covered their faces with masks said the reporter.
Protesters who were present at Fidesz headquarters during the violence reported that riot police didn't show up for close to an hour to prevent the vandal attack on the building. Some attribute this strange move by police to the fact that US embassy charge d'affaires Andre Goodfriend was also on the scene preventing crowd control.
Vice-President of the European Commission Neelie KROES also urged people on Twitter to attend the Sunday's rally.
It seems that the rally was organized at higher places.
Budapest Police issued a statement Monday morning announcing that six people have been taken into custody for breach of peace at Fidesz headquarters Sunday night. The suspects are investigated on suspicion of vandalism by the corruption and economic crime unit of the Budapest police headquarters.
