Oct. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Thousands Hungarians rallied in central Budapest against the measures of Prime Minister Viktor Orban at a demonstration organizers dubbed “D-Day.”
Protesters demanded “fair” taxation, the constitutional protection of early retirement, the restoration of the right to strike, social dialog and the scrapping of retroactive laws.
Organizers, consisting of almost 100 trade unions and civic organizations, estimated the number of participants at close to 50,000 people, news portal nol.hu said.
