Stop Targeting Hungarian NGOs! / Basta prendere di mira le ONG ungheresi !


Stop Targeting Hungarian NGOs!

Since its re-election, the Hungarian government launched a campaign attacking the

credibility of Hungarian NGOs and are striving to gain controlling power over their funding

distributed independently from the government. We believe that a dynamic and independent

civil society plays a fundamental role in a democratic society, as it is one of the key checks

and balances to governing power. As demonstrated by Putins Russia, the harassment of the

civil sector could easily lead to the criminalization of NGOs and could effectively hinder

their work. We stand in solidarity with the Hungarian NGOs and call on the Hungarian and

all other governments to refrain from harassing civil society!
