About 1,000 to 1,500 demonstrators rallied in Pecs, southwest Hungary, on Saturday, to protest plans to build a NATO radar facility on nearby Tubes Hill, according to local media.

Organized by two local groups, activists from Greenpeace and the Humanist Movement also joined the protest, arguing that they do not want a radar station so close to the city. They also voiced their opposition to all wars and military conflicts throughout the world.

Csilla Vicze, spokesperson for the CMM, one of the local civil groups, said they had submitted a request for injunctive relief to a Budapest court, asking it to suspend the defense ministry's building permit and force the ministry to resubmit the applications. The court has not yet acted on that submission, she said.

Vicze said she had recently received a letter from the health minister accusing her of panic mongering.
