Event

Thousands of people are staging anti-government protests in Budapest on the night (local time) of Thursday, December 13, to denounce the government's approval of new labor laws and a new law regarding administrative courts which critics claim undermines judicial independence. Protesters and security forces have reportedly clashed in the capital, exchanging volleys of tear gas and smoke bombs. Demonstrators, many of whom gathered at parliament, also blocked traffic on one of the bridges spanning the Danube River.

Continuing protest activities and clashes between demonstrators and security forces are to be expected over the coming hours, along with associated traffic disruptions in affected areas. Similar protests are possible in Budapest over the near term.

Context

On December 12, around 1000 protesters gathered in front of the parliament building in Budapest. Clashes were reported between participants and police forces.

Advice

Individuals in Budapest are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, monitor the situation, and obey instructions issued by the local authorities.
