The radical nationalist Jobbik party commemorated Hungary’s failed anti-Soviet revolt on Thursday, at Budapest’s Corvin Place, one of the centres of the 1956 events.

Deputy leader of Jobbik Janos Volner called for a “freedom fight in a spiritual sense” and pointed to negative demographic trends, and the danger of Hungary’s soil being purchased by foreign investors as examples.

The ceremony was attended by several hundred people. Participants then staged a torch-lit demonstration at Hungarian Radio headquarters near the National Museum, another site of the revolution.
