Hejőszalonta tüntetés 2011. április 2.


On April 2, two different groups of people went to a small village Hejőszalonta (near Miskolc, ca. 160 km east from Budapest). The first one went there to make a “Demonstration against Gypsy Terror”. This group of people mostly dressed in black Hungarian Guard uniform consisted from right-wing representatives of Hungarian society including far right Jobbik party representatives. A lot of local people from Hejőszalonta joined them. The second group consisted of Roma rights activists, anti-racists and other civilians, a big part of whom were foreigners, who are willing to stand up against neo-nazi terror spreading out in the country. There were also the representatives of Amnesty International and TASZ.

Call for Action

A “Demonstration against Gypsy Terror” will be held on Saturday evening at 6, in Hejőszalonta, with the participation of far right Jobbik MPs. The town is about 160kms east of Budapest.
The local Roma are asking us to join them and form a HUMAN CHAIN around the Roma neighborhood of the town to protect those living there.
A woman was recently murdered in Hejőszalonta and far right Jobbik MPs published a statement that she was a victim of gypsy crime. They have called on people to join them if they want to put an end to gypsy terror. The speakers will include 3 Jobbik MPs and other Jobbik politicians.
Join us in forming a human shield! We are meeting at Blaha Lujza Tér at 3pm. The police will be informed that we are going.
