At the moment, police already outnumber protesters on the square, and a few dozen people have joined Ákos Hadházy on his walk to the Public Media headquarters in the drizzling rain.

Afterwards, opposition leaders held hands at the top of the stairs leading to the gate of the Parliament, and the small crowd applauded them.

The first protesters arrived to Kossuth square, where 50-100 people who headed straight to the Parliament were already waiting for them. Police presence is high, rows of policemen are lining up to defend the Parliament's main gate.

In the meantime, it's starting to rain.

Protesters occupy approximately a quarter of Kossuth Square.
