Human Rights Group Urges Budapest to Allow Gay Pride Parade

Published Date Author: , April 11th, 2012

The Human Rights Watch group is calling on Hungarian authorities to reverse a decision which refused Pride organisers permission to hold a march on their chosen route in Budapest later this year.

The Hungarian police are being called on to allow the 2012 Pride March to take the organisers’ chosen route on 7 July. Human Rights Watch further called on the police to facilitate the peaceful passage of the Pride March, protect marchers’ safety and stop disruption to the event by protesters.

On April 6, the Budapest police rejected the event’s chosen route, saying it would be impossible to redirect traffic around the Pride march.
