Activists of the radical nationalist Mi Hazánk Movement blocked the entrance of a Coca-Cola bottling plant in Dunaharaszti, south of Budapest, in protest against the soft-drink maker’s recent billboards depicting same-sex couples. The activists parked four cars in front of the entrance and put up a sign with the inscription “What comes next? Paedophilia?”, commercial channel Hír TV reported. The police called on the protesters to leave the premises but they refused, the report said. Mi Hazánk earlier called for a boycott of Coca-Cola products for what they see as a “promotion of homosexuality”. Coca-Cola “has no business involving itself in politics or interfering in other people’s private lives and its job is not to try to strengthen forms of social deviance”, László Toroczkai, the party’s leader, has said.
