Polish supporters and friends

First good quality video out on YouTube of our Polish friends who travelled all the way to Budapest. They came to support Hungary and the conservative Orban government yesterday, March 15th Revolution Day. This is the most important national holiday in Hungary. Thousands of Polish supporters arrived by train, bus and car to show their support.

 Editor's Note: As you can see by this YouTube video, these are hardly Polish radicals and extremists as left-wing Hungarian blogs and and media sources are claiming.

The Polish supporters were organzied by Tomasz Sakiewicz, the editor-in-chief of Gazeta Polska, a conservative weekly in Poland. He made a very strong speech in front of the national museum about the historic brotherhood of the Polish and Hungarian people. The Polish supporters later marched to Kossuth square where they heard a speech from Prime Minister Orban Viktor. Hundreds of Polish flags and support banners could be seen in front of Orban and the Hungarian Parliament Building. It has been estimated that up to 5,000 Polish supporters showed up for the pro-government rally.
