Hungarians protest in Budapest as PM Orban delivers national address

As Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban gave his annual state of the nation speech, several hundred protesters gathered outside the Presidential Palace in Buda Castle, while about a hundred demonstrators blocked a nearby bridge over the Danube River. Orban announced new tax and loan benefits for families including the expansion of a loan programme for families with at least two children and women below 40 who marry for the first time will be eligible for a $36,000 subsidised loan. One of the most outspoken critics of mass immigration to Europe from the Middle East and Asia, Orban said that he aimed to keep economic growth 2 percentage points over the European Union average.
