Jobbik party protests in front of Slovak Embassy in Budapest

Hungary's Jobbik party, which operates the controversial Hungarian Guards, staged a demonstration in front of the Slovak Embassy in Budapest on November 5.

Hungary's Jobbik party, which operates the controversial Hungarian Guards, staged a demonstration in front of the Slovak Embassy in Budapest on November 5.

The reason was the controversy surrounding the football match in Dunajská Streda last weekend. The demonstration is the third of its kind since the match, at which police roughed up unruly Hungarian fans. The slogan of this protest was "We won't take it any more!" There were about 300 protesters carrying national flags, historical Hungarian flags. Approximately 120 members of Hungarian Guards were also present.
