Up to 15,000 protesters called for Prime Minister Jozsef Antall's resignation, charging the government is led by former Communists who are unable to halt the nation's economic slide. Rising unemployment and double-digit inflation have fed anti-government sentiment, but the turnout in Budapest was far below the 100,000 predicted by organizers. "Antall must go!' the crowd chanted outside Parliament. The demonstration was organized by the Independent Smallholders' Party, which bolted the governing coalition in February claiming Antall had betrayed Hungary's anti-Communist revolution.
