Activists of the radical nationalist Mi Hazank Movement handed out stickers and flyers protesting US soft drink maker Coca-Cola's advertisement campaign promoting gay acceptance, at the entrance of the Sziget festival on Tuesday. Coca-Cola has designed rainbow-colored labels for its bottles sold at the festival grounds. At a press conference held during the protest, Dora Duro, Mi Hazank's deputy leader, said her party will continue to protest the US multinational's campaign. She insisted it was not just Coca-Cola, but also the government that was to blame "for the current situation", arguing that it had chosen Coca-Cola as its first strategic partner, giving it a number of special privileges, such as the right to provisionally assess tax laws.
