Hungary protesters demand PM's resignation
by UPI

BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Tens of thousands of Hungarians demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany in peaceful protests organized by opposition parties.

The leading opposition center-right party Fidesz said about 250,000 demonstrators took to the streets of Budapest to protest the leftist government Tuesday, one day after violent anti-government protests by ultra-right activists, Croatia’s NOVA TV reported Wednesday. Hungarian police put the number of protesters at about 30,000, NOVA TV said.

In its report from Budapest, the Serbian news agency Tanjug said about 30,000 police were deployed Tuesday in downtown Budapest to control the opposition march.

Fidesz leader Viktor Orban, urging Gyurcsany to step down, asked for a referendum of the government’s economic austerity measures.

Tuesday in Budapest, state and government leaders attended ceremonies marking the anniversary of Hungary’s failed anti-Soviet bloody revolt in 1956.
