Hungarian Gay and Lesbian Parade Attacked

Neo-Nazi thugs attacked a peaceful march by Hungarian gay and lesbians. Many were celebrating the first open gay marriage in Hungary that was sponsored by the Humanists party. Andra Lederer of New Generation, a group of liberal minded Hungarians, argued the violence was fostered by ugly chants of hatred yelled by the thugs as peace marched in peace.

The good news is that police finally took action to prevent marchers being attacked. Unfortunately, several marchers were attacked when they got out of sight of the police.
