Budapest Olympic
Budapest has submitted a bid as a candidate city for the 2024 Summer Olympics. General outrage turned up in the capital and opposition political movements and parties began campaigning on the streets. Collected signatures for a referendum considering a bid for the Games an unaffordable splurge that would invite corruption, which is already a big problem in Hungary. The government moved quickly to end the bid themselves.

Freedom of education in Hungary 
Hungary, nowadays: the government is trying to shut down the Central European University (CEU) with illegitimate methods in Budapest.
Thousands of people are fighting against the decree with constant demonstrations in the capital. It’s lot more than the school itself,
its about freedom of speech, democracy, multiculturalism and critical thinking.

MÁJASKRÉM / LIVER PATÉ
Donated by the Office of Immigration and Nationality in Hungary
Refugee crisis, Hungary 2015. The story about refugees who had to stay and wait in a various camps and they received canned liver pate from the Hungarian government. Nobody ate them because it contains components of pork. Ridiculous how they didn’t take care about cultural habits of the migrants and/or they didn’t even know this local product. Even though it is called poultry liver pate, still has ingredients of pork.

JUST WASH IT
30-year anniversary of Chernobil. 
Due to the nuclear accident at Chernobyl in April 1986, the atmospheric transport spread the released radioactivity throughout the whole Europe.  In Hungary the news came later asthe government tried to hide this information. Encouraging everyoneto go outside with the kids and eatfruits from the trees,vegetables from the fields “just have to wash it”. It became by a proverb. If you ask any of mothers or grandmothers in Hungary what they remember about Chernobil, they will answer it: We can eat salads, we just had to wash it.
