: Dozens of people marching on the streets with flags in their hands, badges on their chest. When they reach their destination a strange looking person steps on the podium and starts to speak. His speech is saturated with hate. He demands a “Jew-free” country; he blames the Roma people for the problems of our society. And this is not 1944 – this is 2012, Hungary.
The rising social tensions evoked the ghosts of the past. More and more people believe we shall revive the Nazi ideas… What is more, the Hungarian far-right movement and its fellow organizations consider themselves as the spiritual heirs of the National Socialist Party.
The neo-fascist party, called Jobbik (Movement for a Better Hungary) got more than 10% in the Hungarian Parliament, and its number of supporters is just growing. It is especially popular among young people, who see less and less hope in their own country. There are even mayors from Jobbik mainly in Eastern Hungary where the social crisis is graver than the usual.
The populist movement has its own media forums on which they can spread their contagious views. They have several thousand Facebook friends, and their internet activity is quite strong. They found the way to our youngsters and they want to steal them and enroll them in the violent mass which leads us nowhere but perdition.
The only thing that holds them back from violence and assault is that they shall seem a legitimate political platform. During their demonstrations they use flags, signs and badges that look almost like those that had been used by their Arrow Cross predecessors during the war. They also have a paramilitary organization called the Magyar Gárda (Hungarian Guard) that was banned by court, but resurrected lately in a renewed form. It uses marches in villages to intimidate our citizens, especially Roma people.
However, there are many conscientious Hungarian people who believe we shall put an end to these processes. We believe all men are created equal, and we cannot blame ethnic groups for general problems. We shall show the world, Hungary is not willing to commit the same crimes as she did in the 20th century! We shouldn’t let history repeat itself!
Friends from all over the world, help your Hungarian brothers to overcome the past, to win this noble battle against hatred, anti-Semitism, racism and populism! Every nation’s death is when it stays silent in troubled times. As Elie Wiesel said: “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference”.
On behalf of this moral obligation we started a petition on the internet, to stop the neo-Nazi movement in our country. The results of this petition will be presented to the leaders of our country and will be send to all major offices and departments.
Please support the case for Hungary, for freedom, for democracy and for peace. Find the link below and sign the petition! (Any given data will not we published, but used only for identification.)
