some fascist news from hungary, where i currently live: the government has just made my university illegal because it's full of commies and queers. ten thousand people marched and they fast-tracked the legislation, then eighty thousand people marched for the president to veto it and he signed it into law. the hungarian press, which is now pretty much exclusively pro-government, reported that the demonstration had a "disappointing turnout" and that protesters were being paid and/or flown in by george soros. all eighty thousand of them. here are some photos: https://www.facebook.com/marton.rovid/media_set?set=a.10154683405344302.1073741844.519894301&type=3&pnref=story
people are on the streets again right now, but essentially hungary is a full on authoritarian state now and we're probably fucked. and the university thing isn't even close to the worst shit they're doing: all refugees are now being forced into shipping container detention camps and a report just came out about some pretty horrific police brutality at the border, while the prime minister straight out says he wants an "ethnically homogeneous country"
this post has been a public service to make you all feel marginally better about shitty britain. i realise everywhere is going pretty 1930s right now, but it does really feel like i'm living right at the brink of it
