Dumpser Diving Demo
After the arrests, a spontaneous march started from the location of the demo to the police station with drumming and shouting "a szegények nem bűnözők" (the poor are not criminals), "a város mindenkié" (the city is for all). Some people in the street liked this march and joined the spontaneous march. When the people arrived to the police station, the police told the people to stop drumming, shouting and showing banners as this is an illegal action, and if the people continue on doing the things they were doing before, the police has the right to arrest everyone. So, the demonstrators were just standing on the opposite side of the police station waiting for the police to release the arrested organizer. As it started to be boring, some of the people started dancing and making smaller performances. E.g., one girl who was dressed as a bride went to the policemen with another girl in order to ask them if they want to marry her. The police told they liked her, but just on the other side of the road. So, then the people started marching with an anarchist flag, after that the people started performance with clowns and police. After a while the police gave the people the permission to make a demonstration.
So, the Rhythms of Resistance started drumming, but it did not last long, as the local inhabitants complained because the disturbance. Around 11 p.m. the police released the arrested organizer. The other 8 people arrested for dumpster diving had been released earlier, and they were in the building of local government.
