By Attila Nagy on at

Tens of thousands of peaceful Hungarians marched again in the streets and on the bridges of Budapest on Tuesday, continuing the demonstration against the proposed internet tax.

According to Reuters, an estimated 100,000 people rallied at night to protest at a planned tax on data traffic suggested by Prime Minister Viktor Orban's government. By a more conservative estimate, about 50,000-70,000 people demanded the withdrawal of the tax proposal and this is how the mass looked in the capital of Hungary.
