The march started from the Budapest University of Technology and ended at Bem József Square near Margaret Bridge.
Addressing the marchers, Gergely Gulyás, head of the Prime Minister’s Office, said “history has shown that we can only preserve our freedom and Hungarian culture if we stand together.” Hungarians around the world have to know that they can count on the homeland, Gulyás said.
“That is why we must do everything we can to protect the Hungarians in Transcarpathia,” he said.
“By paying our respects to the sacrifice of those who came before us and by remembering the hell they lived through after the revolution was stifled, we set standards. Remembrance is a responsibility,” Gulyás said.
