Neo-Nazi groups threaten the 15 March rally of democrats in Budapest

The new Facebook group page "Rendszervágás"(1) has recently published serious threats(2-5) for participants of the anti-governmental rally of democrats taking place in Budapest on 15 March 2012. As announced by members of the group, armed troops of 3-5 people will unexpectedly show up among the demonstrators, will beat and injure them. Besides notorious figures of the far-right scene in Hungary like Zsolt Tyirityán, György Budaházy, László Toroczkai, and Balázs Sziva, now their Italian accomplice Roberto Fiore has also confirmed his participation in the far-right action. Conversely, famous intellectuals from Western Europe including Daniel Cohn-Bendit, Member of the European Parliament will strengthen the democratic side.

The threatening post(4) that has been, in the meanwhile, removed from the Facebook group "Rendszervágás"(1)
[2012.03.18.: the post is visible for eveyone on the web-opened Facebook-page(1).]
It is to be feared that, unless serious precautions by the police will be taken, violence can hardly be avoided at this most significant national holiday of Hungarians. We are wondering who is really interested in violence and its possible escalation that may finally lead even to declaring the state of emergency.
