Tonight, November 17, in Budapest, more than ten thousand Hungarians came to the parliament building, protesting against corruption.
The organizers and participants note that they protest against state corruption, rising taxes and the current foreign policy of Hungary (openly anti-European and pro-Kremlin), and they demand freedom, transparency, responsible leadership and attachment to real European values.
People cordoned off the parliament building after Prime Minister Viktor Orban refused to dismiss Tax Ildiko Vidu, who was recently banned from entering the US because of allegations of corruption.
Exactly one week ago, protesters were already meeting with a similar requirement, and also requested EU intervention. Currently, there is a crush between activists and policemen at the entrance to the parliament building.
According to local media, the head of the Hungarian tax service appears on the US "black list" along with six other Hungarian officials who are banned from entering the country because of allegations of corruption. Ildiko Vida denies all charges against her.
