100,000 Hungarians have rallied in Budapest in protest over a new “internet tax” that critics have condemned as “government despotism” and an assault on the freedom of information.

“The internet tax is a symbol of the government’s despotism,” Zsolt Varady, an internet entrepreneur, told the crowd. “We not only need to defeat the tax, we need to believe that we are capable of criticising and influencing the state. “The internet tax threatens the further growth of the internet as well as freedom of information.”
