Several thousand people gathered in Budapest on Sunday, September 6, to protest for the independence of Hungary's University of Theatre and Films Arts. This follows the imposition of a government-appointed board which protesters feel will undermine the university's autonomy. Participants of the rally reportedly formed a chain in central Budapest before moving to the Parliament building. There were no immediate reports of clashes or arrests at the rally.

Further protests surrounding the government decision are possible in the near term.


Those in Budapest are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities
