Far-Right Calls for Hungary to Annul 1921 Trianon Ratification

MTI-Hungary Today 2021.06.05.

The radical Sixty-Four Counties Youth Movement (HVIM) held a torch-lit march to commemorate the 101st anniversary of the Trianon peace treaty in Budapest on Friday evening.

Addressing the commemoration, László Toroczkai, leader of the non-parliamentary Mi Hazánk party, called on parliament to annul the 1921 law ratifying the WWI treaty under which two-thirds of Hungary’s territory was ceded to neighboring countries.

But if parliament fails to resolve the issue of Trianon, then it is the one standing in the way of the treaty’s revision, he said. Toroczkai insisted that a government that represented the interests of the people could fight to get the United Nations to declare the treaty void.

He also called for a law against the relativization of Trianon similar to the law against Holocaust denial.
