& # 39; & # 39; He came to us! & # 39; & # 39 ;. The Hungarians went out into the street! They protested



Several thousand Hungarians appeared in Budapest on Saturday against Prime Minister Viktor Orban and the new law amending the overtime regime, MTI and Reuters, according to Agerpres.

The protesters wore a banner with the message "It's here!" And the flags of Hungary and the European Union.

A group of 50-60 people marched from the Heroes' Square to Andrassy Boulevard, in the Hungarian capital.

Other demonstrators crossed the Freedom Bridge, elevated across the Danube, and clustered close to the old Buda Castle (the western part of the Hungarian capital, formerly a city in its own right).

Demonstration also in the country

In Salgotarjan, in the north of Hungary, an event took place on Saturday morning in the city center, with about 200 participants demanding a more flexible pension system and modifying the labor conflict law.

Several union leaders intervened to demand fair wages and increase public sector wages.

The Hungarian government, led by Viktor Orban, passed a December law that requires workers to provide up to 400 extra hours in the year.

Orban argues that the law serves the interests of workers, who therefore have the legal opportunity to work according to the normal program at a time when the Hungarian economy is experiencing a serious shortage of manpower.
