Worldwide Vigil Reports - from Budapest

Sept. 30, 2003

I am sending you a short report about our demonstration.

We wanted to keep far any extreme groups from us (e.g. anti-Semite or Zionist), therefore we advertised our vigil only on the mailing lists of the green, alternative, anti-WTO groups.

We believed that there will be about 40-50 participants, but we were only 24. It is strange for me, why many important green groups have kept away from our action. Strange also, that the Energy Club did not come - although its main project is the nuclear issue! (I must suppose that they financial sources are near to a Zionist lobby....) A leader of a big and good organisation (Védegylet = "Protecting organisation"), an old friend of me told us, that Vanunu is a "traitor to his country!"

So we were only twenty-four. Members of our group (ELTE), the Green Youth Society, Amnesty International Hungary, Alba Circle - a peace group, some people from the Bokor (means "Bush"), a Roman Catholic base community and the Rügyecskék ("Small burgeons") group. The Green Youth Society was very active!

Fidusz, from the ELTE gave an address about Mordechai, then a young girl, Dori, also from the ELTE have read the poem of Vanunu (I Am Your Spy) - translated into Hungarian by Fidusz, than Jenő Demeczky from the Bokor have read our petition. (Previously I have called up the embassy, where a lady told me, that they refuse to accept our letter - we have sent it in registered one.)

After the lectures we have lighted 17 pieces of wicks, and were sitting on the ground silently.

We have sent our invitation for about 25 daily and weekly papers two days before, but we were visited only by one (!) Person, from an on-line-newspaper. Now we will send the text of our petition for some.

I am a little tired, but happy, that in Central and Eastern Europe at least in one city we could organise something for Mordechai.

Thanking your many helps, all best wishes

from Lajos
