Statue of Karolyi - outraged by Hungarian parliamentary neo-fascist party Jobbik

16 November 1918: proclamation of the the first Republic of Hungary, president: Karolyi Mihaly, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mih%C3%A1ly_K%C3%A1rolyi 

16 November 1919: Miklos Horthy entered Budapest at the head of the National Army, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikl%C3%B3s_Horthy

16 November 2010, Budapest, Kossuth Square, Statue of Mihaly Karolyi:
Hungarian parliamentary neo-fascist party Jobbik, pretending a celebrating the anniversary of the invasion Horthy, dishonored statue of Mihaly Karolyi, the Hungarian Republic, the democracy, presented their fascist ideas, incited against the order of the Hungarian Republic, intimidated by ther militant appearance,  enjoying the parliamentary immunity:

Outrage the statue of Karolyi has been beeing a favorite pastime of neo-cross-arrowers for years: http://szentkoronaradio.com/taxonomy/term/4216

Their latest action was expected, therefore, some civilians tried to organize a protest there at the same time , but the police convinced them not to do so  telling  "would not be able" to protect them: http://evita.nolblog.hu/archives/2010/11/16/ Hetkoznapi_gyalazat /

Therefore, unfortunately, now we can act only to express protest postdated, as a regular for years: 21th November 2010, Budapest, Kossuth Square, at the Statue. (see also our calendar).
