Thousands of Hungarians protest against Orban's rule


BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Around 10,000 Hungarians protested in Budapest on Sunday against a new labour law and what they see as the increasingly authoritarian rule of right-wing nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Sunday's protest, called "Merry Xmas Mr. Prime Minister" by organisers, was the fourth, and biggest demonstration in a week by leftist opposition parties, student groups and civilians against Orban's government. Trade unions also joined the rally.
