MKKP Demonstration Shuts Down Erzsébet Bridge, But Protest Fever Waning in Budapest

After several days without protests in Budapest, the Hungarian Two-Tailed Dog Party (MKKP) organized another demonstration on Erzsébet Bridge on Friday evening.

Police closed off the bridge to vehicular traffic as speeches by civic activists and musicians entertained the crowd of a few hundred people.

While demonstrations were held in the capital every day last week except Sunday to protest the changes to the KATA simplified tax scheme, this week saw comparatively fewer of them.

The week began with a protest by food delivery workers, who shut down traffic on Margit Bridge on Monday morning. After President Katalin Novák signed the KATA bill into law late on Monday, Momentum organized an evening demonstration at the Buda Castle, although police did not let the protestors get close to the empty Sándor Palace.
