Hungarian Spectrum [1] and The Contrarian Hungarian [2] write about the Oct. 23 anti-government rally, organized through a Facebook community called Egymillióan a magyar sajtószabadságért [3] [hu; 88,272 ‘likes’]/One Million for the Freedom of Press in Hungary [4] [en; 720 ‘likes’] – and about a pro-government rally, which was scheduled to take place on the same day some 700 meters away from the opposition rally, but was cancelled on Oct. 17, allegedly due to PM Viktor Orbán's Oct. 23 visit to Brussels.
