All Hell Breaks Loose

2006.09.19. 10:59 | riotsinhungary

On Monday, September 18th the worst violence since the 1956 uprising broke out on the streets of Budapest. What started out as another peaceful night of demonstrations with about 15 000 people in front of the Parliament building in central Budapest quickly degenerated into full-blown streetfightig, which left more than 100 policemen and dozens of rioters injured.

Trouble started when a small, extreme-right wing group showed up at the building of the Hungarian State Television (Magyar Televízió, MTV), and demanded its leaders to broadcast the group's manifesto regarding the current political situation. When security staff didn't even let them into the building, a part of the crowd concentrated near the Parliament walked over to the channel's headquarters, just a couple of blocks away.
