PM Orbán speaks before a crowd of thousands to commemorate the 1956 anti-Communist uprising

The prime minister took to a specially constructed stage outside the House of Terror Museum to deliver a message that was as much about the future of Europe as it was about the 1956 revolution

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán addressed a crowd of thousands to commemorate the 1956 anti-Communist uprising yesterday.

The prime minister took to a specially constructed stage outside the House of Terror Museum to deliver a message that was as much about the future of Europe as it was about the 1956 revolution.

The prime minister said the greatness, strength and glory of Europe lies in the competing and cooperating nation states and that Europe is not a melting pot but home for all of its nations.

PM Orbán believes that Brussels is led by those who would like to see an empire ruled not by its respective national leaders but the bureaucrats in Brussels. The prime minister said they all support migration as a means of erasing national identities and although they had the necessary police and military force, they did and will not defend the European borders from migration.

"If we could do it, they could have done it as well. It was not a lack capabilities but a lack of will,” PM Orbán said.

The prime minister stressed that the future of Europe will be at stake at the European Parliamentary elections next May and Hungarians will also have to make their choices.

"Let us reject the ideology of globalism and support instead a culture of patriotism,” the prime minister added.

The prime minister remembered the freedom fighters and those that lost their lives in the 1956 revolution. He said that Hungarians will even fight losing battles, but would rather have both heroism and rationality on their side.

He added that in the confusing 1950s the Hungarian revolutionaries chose the right course of action, even if it was a last-ditch effort. The fallen will be remembered on October 23rd every year.
