Thousands of angry demonstrators occupied the state television headquarters on Liberty Square in the heart of Budapest, Hungary. They also attacked the parliament. Some police cars were burned. more than 100 police men were injured. The people had been gathering at Kossuth square (in front of the parliament, pretty near to Liberty square) since Sunday evening, with the strong will to send away the government. Before that on the same day a record was leaked with a speech from Gyurcsány Ferenc, the prime minister. He hold a secret speach to members of his party and the government, declaring that the politicians in hungary, including him, have betrayed the hungarian people for years and lied about the true state of the county. He announced that massive social cuts were necessary. The tape was recorded during a closed meeting of the ruling parties fraction in may, after they have won the elections.

parts of the secret speech of the hungarian prime minister:

„There is not much choice. There is not, because we fucked up. Not a little, a lot. No European country has done something as boneheaded as we have. Evidently, we lied throughout the last year-and-a-half, two years. It was totally clear that what we are saying is not true. You cannot quote any significant government measure we can be proud of, other than at the end we managed to bring the government back from the brink. Nothing. If we have to give account to the country about what we did for four years, then what do we say?" Gyurcsány Ferenc, prime minister
