March for Kata Bándy

Various Hungarian nationalist and patriotic organizations held a march that paid tribute to the recently murdered Kata Bándy and other victims of Roma (gypsy) crime. The march was held in the city of Pécs, where Bándy was killed. It is estimated that around 800 people participated in the march. The march made its way through the downtown core of the city then to the home of the killer.

The march finally made its way to the place where Bándy's body was found. There was a moment of silence as well as the Hungarian anthem being sung. Apparently, the marchers received a lot of support by the spectators along the march route. Many people expressed their solidarity with the marchers by waving flowers and shouting words of support.
