Watch: Hundreds Protest Against Lockdown In Budapest
A crowd estimated at nearly 1,000 joined a rally staged by far-right party Mi Hazánk and coronavirus sceptics against the ongoing lockdown.

As soon as organisers started the demonstration on downtown Vígadó utca, the gathering was immediately surrounded by the police.

Mi Hazánk president László Toroczkai gave a speech in front of the Las Vegas Casino, and, after some hassle, the crowd was permitted to march to Parliament, where virus sceptics led by György Gődény also congregated.

Police continued identification of the demonstrators, and seized several Mi Hazánk flags.
