Hungary's Nationalist Jobbik Party Joins Demonstrations Against 'Slave Law'

Protesters with Hungary’s nationalist Jobbik party marched through the streets of Budapest on Friday, December 21, chanting and waving flags before joining other demonstrators outside the parliament building.Demonstrations over the past several weeks have united groups across the political spectrum against policies passed by Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party.

A law raising the number of overtime hours employers can demand, colloquially known as the “slave law,” has stirred opposition as did the creation of a set of courts under political control.

Thousands have gathered outside Parliament and outside the offices of a state-controlled media organization to register their dissent.In video recorded live to the Jobbik party’s Facebook page, members of the conservative party marched through the streets carrying flags bearing the movement’s insignia.

The Jobbik “movement” began as a far-right political group dedicated to “Hungarian values and interests.” It has since grown to become the second largest party in Hungary’s parliament and moderated its positions.
