SOS Civilradio – Save the free voice of Civil Society in Hungary
“The political leadership in Hungary in the last few years has slowly and systematically pushed back every bottom-up grassroots civil initiative. They have narrowed the open tenders, grants and other funds, while purposely creating administrative obstacles for the NGOs and other small community organizations. These new legal regulations reflect the political thinking in government which does not tolerate alternative and different opinions and perspectives. The new laws are written, approved and changed without a consultation with civil and professional societies.And this is why Civil Radio is today in a desperate situation.
Civil Radio is one of the last independent community radio stations still standing in Hungary.”
