Now, This Is What I Call Re-enactment

2006.10.24. 07:51 | ike


It’s 5 o’clock pm on the Nagykörút (grand boulevard) near Oktogon. An old, olive green Hungarian-made Csepel military truck carries what seems to be a load of protesters dressed up in revolution-era historic costumes. Ah, actors. The big white cyrillic letters painted on the back of the truck read „Russki domoy” (Russian go home), a common graffiti during the 1956 revolution. Suddenly, traffic forces  the truck to stop, and the passengers, waving Hungarian flags, start yelling at passers-by: „Traitors! Traitors!”

Now, this is what I call authentic re-enactment. But who are the traitors? Gotta find out.


 

This Csepel was parked on Sunday on Andrássy út as a historic exhibit. All quiet at the moment.

I'd say that the hijacking of an old Soviet era tank from a historical exhibit on October 23rd in downtown Budapest just about pushes the term 'audacity' to an all new level.
