IMMIGRATION & POLICY

Hungary's anti-immigration campaign sparks controversy

Budapest (AFP) - New anti-immigration billboards put up by the Hungarian government have sparked political controversy, with the head of a small opposition party admitting on Monday that he had vandalised the state-funded posters. The posters, which recently popped up in the capital Budapest, feature slogans like: "If you come to Hungary, you cannot take away Hungarians' jobs" and "If you come to Hungary, you have to respect our culture!"



"We will not stop making the hate posters disappear," said Viktor Szigetvari who leads the opposition liberal party, Together (Egyutt).

Six of his party members were arrested on Sunday for defacing the billboards, but have since been released.

The posters -- widely ridiculed on social media -- are part of a larger anti-immigration campaign driven by Prime Minister Viktor Orban in response to a surge in asylum seekers.

Last year, Hungary received more refugees per capita than any other EU country apart from Sweden, up to almost 43,000 people from 2,000 in 2012.

In a further sign that Hungary is hardening its stance on foreigners, a senior lawmaker from the ruling Fidesz party floated the idea of the country closing its southern borders to stop the influx of migrants.

"We are working on a law that will prevent people arriving from safe countries from applying for political asylum in Hungary," Antal Rogan told Kossuth Radion on Sunday.

He said migrants' lives may have been in danger in Syria - a key source of refugees, together with Afghanistan and Kosovo - but that once they crossed into safe transit countries, like Greece or Serbia, they could apply for asylum there.

Last month, Orban stirred international controversy when his government sent a survey to eight million Hungarian voters with questions linking migrants with terrorism

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
