Hungary: Far-right commemorate Austro-Hungarian Empire split

A Hungarian far-right party held a rally in Budapest of Sunday to mourn the 99th anniversary of the Treaty of Trianon. March organisers the Sixty-Four Counties Youth Movement call for the unification of all Hungarians that live outside of Hungary and the revision of the Treaty of Trianon. The protest was joined by Laszlo Toroczkai, leader of Mi Hazank, which translates as Our Homeland Movement... Еще (OHM). OHM formed last year by ex-members of fellow far-right party Jobbik. Toroczkai spoke to around 200 supporters before the group marched through the capital. Some held signs of placenames from the former Hungarian Kingdom, which was broken up after the First World War. The Treaty of Trianon signed in on June 4, 1920 defined the modern borders of Hungary, leaving it landlocked and with only 28% of territory that constituted the pre-war Kingdom of Hungary. An estimated 31% of ethnic Hungarians were left outside of post-Trianon Hungary.
