We have just received news of a magnificent resistance organised by our colleagues in The City is for All, to stop the proposed Hungarian homelessness laws. It is an organisation which, like social worker Norbert Ferencz, campaign against the Hungarian government’s measures to tackle this social problem as a criminal issue.
In opposition to the proposal by local mayor Mate Kocsis to impose a 530 euros fine on homeless people or 60 days of imprisonment for "residing in public places", The City is for All held a large demonstration on 11th November followed by a sit-in in the municipality building which ended in arrests. SWAN once again extends its support and solidarity to the campaign. Read more on the protest here.
We have 46 guests and 7 members online
