“We are organizing another whistling concert for Viktor Orbán on February 2nd,” the organizers wrote in a Facebook event.
“This time Vladimir Putin will be there with him, from whom the Hungarian prime minister is diligently learning illiberal governance, the badgering of civil organizations, the limiting of free press, theft and the enhancement of family assets.”
The party previously organized a protest by blowing into whistles during an Orbán speech in the Kossuth Lajos square outside the Parliament building on October 23 last year, the 60th anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian revolution and one of Hungary’s most important national holidays.
Confrontations between the protesters and Orbán supporters culminated with some reports of physical assault, and Együtt party co-chair Péter Juhász, who organized the demonstration, was prevented by private security from entering the square. Juhász, along with Együtt president Viktor Szigetvári and Együtt MP Zsuzsanna Szelényi, will speak at the Putin protest at Kossuth Lajos square.
