The Sixty-four Counties Youth Movement held its annual Trianon march at the 95th anniversary of the Trianon “Peace” Treaty on Sunday

Monday, June 8, 2015

The Sixty-four Counties Youth Movement (HVIM) held its annual traditional Trianon march Sunday night in the capital. The event attended by more than a thousand people. The marchers left the Regnum Marianum church at 7 pm and stopped at the Serbian, Romanian and Slovak embassies, the countries that benefited most from the dismemberment of historical Hungary 95 years ago.

The HVIM organized rally is the largest Trianon march every year held in Budapest and joined by a number of national organizations. Unlike in previous years, this year's event started 7 pm, which was due to an innovation to transform the march into a torch rally.

Historical Hungary had about 15 thousand locomotives in 1918, of which 6800 were transferred to the successor states at the end of World War I. Before the dismemberment of Hungary in 1920 as a result of the Treaty of Versailles, Hungary had one of Europe's busiest and most developed rail networks that the new borders cut in half at 53 locations; most of the rail lines have already been eliminated by the successor states. In the 19th century, Hungary developed a radial railway network centered on Budapest and two circular railway lines that linked Nagykanizsa Pécs, Szabadka, Szeged, Békéscsaba with Arad, Munkács and Kassa directly. The victorious powers, in certain cases, intentionally drew the new borders to cut off the strategic railway lines from the rest of the country; as a result, cities like Nagyszalonta, Nagyvárad, Szatmárnmeti, Csap, Kassa were transfered to the successor states. The sub-regions that the new borders cut off from the rest of the country have been marginalized and since have lost their commercial roles.

The Trianon “Peace” Treaty impacts our economy to this day. As a result, only fifty percent of industrial areas have remained in Hungarian hands -- 35 percent of coal mines, 63 percent of railway network, 65 percent of the road network and 67 percent of financial institutions were transferred to the successor states.

Hungary also lost 61 percent of its arable land, 88 percent of its forest, 70 percent of its cattle stock, and most of its salt, gold and silver mines.

Beyond losing a large part of national wealth, we lost a significant part of our domestic market as well. As a result, even today, steel and iron products that are crucial for industrial growth have been imported from Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
