PROTEST


Hungarians rally against government's anti-terror plans

Budapest (AFP) - Hundreds of people rallied in Budapest on Sunday against government plans to bring in anti-terror measures including restrictions on the Internet and curfews. "The plan would put an end to democracy once and for all," protest organiser Lajos Bokros told the crowd in front of the Hungarian parliament, estimated by an AFP reporter at around 800 strong.


According to a draft leaked to the media last week, the government wants to amend the constitution by creating a new category of emergency -- "terror threat situation" -- that if declared would enable it to issue decrees, suspend certain laws, and modify others.

Among some 30 proposed changes are controls on the Internet, deployment of the army domestically, closing of borders, and the imposition of curfews in areas affected by a terrorist threat.

Critics including several opposition parties and rights groups say a vaguely defined "terror threat" could allow the government to clamp down on civil liberties.

"It's happened in our history before, and we're afraid it will happen again, that at any given time the government can allow itself to restrict our rights," said Gyorgy Magyar, a lawyer who spoke at the rally.

The proposals will be debated in parliament next month, according to Gergely Gulyas, a lawmaker with Prime Minister Viktor Orban's ruling rightwing Fidesz party.

In a newspaper interview last week Gulyas said talks with opposition parties are ongoing and dismissed accusations that Fidesz wants to seize "full powers".

"The government's duty is to protect citizens from terrorism," he said.

Since coming to power in 2010 Orban's government has often been accused of dismantling democratic checks and balances.


After losing a parliamentary super majority last February however it needs the support of at least some opposition lawmakers to pass constitutional amendments.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
