The people who work for civil society, charities and NGOs in Hungary are working to build a fair society for the people of the country and for the world. Without their work, the world we live in would be a different place.
But right now the Hungarian government are trying to use the law to force many non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to stop their work or risk fines, bankruptcy and even shut down. They are proposing legislation which means that they can control and restrict the work and funding of NGOs working on anything related to migration; including human rights organisations and people that provide legal and social services.
Why is this happening? We think it is because the government wants to silence and crush anyone who dare to raise their voice and criticize the authorities. This is creating a culture of suspicion and fear that will affect every person in Hungary. We can’t let this happen.
The NGOs at risk in Hungary need your support and solidarity.
Write a message now and tell these brave people and organisations that you support their crucial work in making Hungary a safe and fair place for all.
We will make sure the authorities get the message, too.
The government needs to see that we will not let them stamp on the people who work for a society based on love, not hate.
There is still a chance the Hungarian parliament won’t pass the proposed laws, and before they vote we want to show them what civil society means to us all.
There isn’t a lot of time left, so please send your message of support now.
Please feel free to change your message.
