Stop the right in Budapest
Wednesday 19th October 2011
The current mayor of Budapest, Istvan Tarlos, has decided to give the New Theatre, one of the city’s publicly funded theatres, to Gyorgy Dorner, an actor with open links to the far right. His newly appointed dramaturg-intendant — Istvan Csurka — is the party leader of a Hungarian neo-nazi party, the anti-Semitic MIEP. The Hungarian public is shocked, and next week there will be a demonstration about the decision. There is a website with articles about what is happening, and the organisers ask people to sign their petition against the decision. Please, help us to stop this happening.
