<nettime> against illiberal education

BUDAPEST-Hungary on Tuesday saw the largest public protest since 2014 as demonstrators rallied against what they see as the populist government's tightening grip on education.

Tens of thousands of people demonstrated in a rainy Hungarian capital against Prime Minister Viktor Orban's administration, the latest sign of public discontent with governing politicians.

A group of teachers, parents and students-speakers at the rally in front of the country's landmark parliament building-called for a one-hour nationwide strike March 30 unless Mr. Orban ensures talks on teachers' demands continue in earnest.
