"Tens of thousands of Hungarians turned out last night to protest what they say is a country dressed up as a democracy but sliding into authoritarian rule. [They] protested against Hungary's new constitution, while Prime Minister Viktor Orban and members of the ruling party Fidesz celebrated the new Constitution. ... Hungarian opposition and civil society groups ... gathered outside Budapest's Opera House, where Prime Minister Viktor Orban and members of the ruling party Fidesz celebrated the new Constitution to classical music strains performed by the national orchestra. They held signs reading 'Europe, We are sorry about our Prime Minister,' and shouted 'Dictator, dictator'; 'Orban, get away!'; 'Cowards!'; and 'Victator!'" (01/03/12)
