Says BNP Leader in Budapest
by BNP News
Today’s nationalists in Europe are still fighting the ghost of Stalinism which is alive in the form of the European Union, BNP leader Nick Griffin told a crowd in Budapest, Hungary, yesterday afternoon.
Addressing one of many rallies held in the city to commemorate the 1956 uprising against the Communist regime in that country, Mr Griffin said that while nationalists in Hungary stood alone in 1956, in 2008 all European nationalists were standing together.
Speaking through an interpreter, Mr Griffin said that the ghost of Stalin was still alive in the shape of the European Union. “The EU too seeks to take away our freedoms and rights,” he said.
The BNP leader was invited to Budapest to address the rally by the Jobbik party (Movement for a Better Hungary). Their leader, Dr Krisztina Morvai, and a 1956 Uprising veteran, Gyula Kosa, also addressed the crowd.
Other speakers included Italian Forza Nuova leader Roberto Fiore, an Italian MEP, who spoke of the international banking crisis and well-known Hungarian activists Laszlo Toroczkai and Gyorgy Budahazy.
At another rally, not attended by Mr Griffin, police arrested some demonstrators protesting police action against demonstrators from previous years’ rallies. In a show of solidarity, Mr Griffin and the other European nationalist leaders toured the police stations where the Hungarians were being detained, to ensure that they were given all due process of the law and were being treated decently.
Next stop on Mr Griffin’s agenda is Prague for the Czech National Day on October 28. He will be the guest of Petra Edelmannova, chairman of the National Party, Czech Republic, and will spend two days discussing strategy and tactics.
