freelogoOur objective is to provide English speaking readers interested in Hungary with a well balanced view of political activities in Hungary by featuring contents from various printed and online sources together with our own commentaries. We are convinced that Hungary is built on all sorts of different ideas, thoughts and opinions and, despite of the new Media Law, our aim is to provide an alternative and reliable source of information – contrary to the one-sided press of the government – for those who want to hear the voice of a free Hungary.

After Avas

It will be worth the while to seriously analyse the experiences and the reception of our visit to Miskolc. Half a day after saying goodbye to Miskolc I just would like to say that we made the decision of the visit after deep consideration, and I think today that the families of Avas will finally see the advantage of these three days.

We new it from the very beginning that this would be a dangerous journey. We knew that the borderline is thin and hardly visible in this case: it is an action of an empathetic and responsible politician, or it is political kitsch and a selfish tabloid story? None of our programmes were for the media. We did what we tought a politician had to do in case of such a visit, and we left for the media to decide if they were interested in it or not. We did not invite them. It wasn't us who arranged that they had come with such an intensive interest, they decided to do so.

The most complex question is how to solve the acute conflicts of cohabitation in the hoising estates. We met a lot of conflicts of this type. We met crying women, complaining families, people tired of disputes. Based on our experiences I agree with the police commissioner that regulatory tools cannot handle the majority of these conflicts. And I fully agree with those who say that the people of Miskolc and Avas themselves cannot solve this issue.

Our opinion has become stronger: new – maybe some taboo – regulation would be nescessary. We would like to help the people of Avas in order to bring back peace and quiet to the streets and flats.

Finally we would like to thank our hosts for their kindness and help (special thanks to the Marincsák family, my „family", to the parents Kati and Laci, to the kids Réka and Laci for hosting me) and to those who supported us in our journey to Avas.
