    Background: Apl 4 was Hungarian Liberation Day. VISNEWS filmed as troops and vehicles paraded through Dossagyorgy Square - formerly Stalin Square - for the 14th. anniversary celebrations.

    Party and army leaders stood on the plinth of the old Stalin monument - the statue was destroyed by anti-Communists during the 1956 October Revolution. Party Secretary Kadar, Premier Munich and Defense Minister Revise took the salute.

    Leading the marching column were veteran Hungarian Communist party members, and detachments of the Workers Militia brought up the rear.
