Thousands of Hungarians revolt against Internet traffic tax (LIVE)

Protesters lit up the József nádor (Palatine Joseph) square in Budapest with the light from their mobile phones on Sunday. They were protesting outside the Ministry for National Economy against government plans to introduce a tax on internet bandwidth tariffs. Later in the evening some activists went to the headquarters of the ruling Fidesz party and threw computer parts at the building.
The organisers of the rally gave the government 48 hours to withdraw the tax legislation and called for another protest on Tuesday if their demand is not met. Ruplty will provide live coverage of the protest on Tuesday, if it goes ahead.
