Opposition Joins Forces with Sargentini to Protest against Orbán

Gábor Sarnyai 2019.01.07.

On Tuesday, a demonstration against the Orbán government will be held in Brussels, in the central part of the EU quarter, in front of the European Commission and the European Council headquarters. 

The Tuesday demonstration in Brussels is organized by Red (Radical European Democrats) founded by Socialist MEP István Ujhelyi. A wide array of the Hungarian leftist opposition will participate in the protest, including socialist MSZP, green LMP, Párbeszéd and liberal Momentum.

Sargentini has become widely known in Hungary for her report claiming that the Hungarian government poses a threat to the rule of law and violates the fundamental values of the EU.

The report was adopted by the European Parliament with a two-thirds majority last September. The report was also voted for by the EPP–of which Fidesz is a member.
