Shame: Socialist party keeps defiling the memory of 1956 revolution (2016.10.25.)

The volley of shots fired in Kossuth Square on October 25, 1956 claimed the lives of hundreds of victims.  The memories of these heroes were defiled by Fidesz and the Socialists, the two big parties of the 20th century, by bringing back the atmosphere of the 1950s. Fidesz has done so by its media lies typical of the Communist Rákosi regime, while the Socialists' behaviour was in line with that of their legal predecessor, the Hungarian Socialist Workers' Party.

Our nation's tragedy was commemorated and reminded by Jobbik on saturday (2016.06.04.)

It was 96 years ago that the Trianon peace dictate was signed, as a result of which 2.3 million Hungarians were stuck beyond the new borders drawn on the military maps and subjected to the rule of foreign and hostile countries building their national states. For their own selfish strategic considerations, the Paris peacemakers disrupted the millennial economic and political unity of the Carpathian Basin, erecting hard-to-break obstacles in the way of cooperation in such matters as flood relief or environment protection, which have proven extremely harmful for other countries as well. Meanwhile, they planted mutual fear, the so-called “Trianon Syndrome”  in the souls of the Carpathian Basin’s nations who had already been divided yet had always been co-dependent. Up to this day, this fear has always prevented any honest cooperation among the region’s nations and states, subjecting them to the whims of the neighbouring great powers.

Jobbik's Western European organization continues in Ireland (2016.05.27.)

After London and Bristol, Dublin has become the westernmost European location where Jobbik established a friendship group last week. Organizer György Dorogi’s goals are to strengthen the Hungarian identity of our youth living there as well as to arrange a collection programme to supply toys and children’s books for the families away from their motherland. 

In his Sunday’s press release, vice president István Szávay informed the public that Jobbik’s Dublin Friendship Group was established during his three-day tour in the Irish capital. After Munich, New York, London, Vienna, Zurich and Bristol, Dubliners formed the seventh foreign group of the movement. The participants of the meeting also raised the issue of allowing Hungarians living abroad to vote by post, which the patriotic opposition has been demanding for years – so far in vain.

Hungarians living outside the Carpathian basin need churches and schools, too (2015.05.15.)

The massive emigration of recent years has created a new situation in national policy. Now there are Hungarian communities with tens of thousands of people living in Western Europe and overseas. However, these modern emigrant groups do not get organized support from the motherland, the government has neither a clear intention nor an action plan to do so, writes Jobbik MP István Szávay in his press release on Sunday.

Kim Jong Viktor visits factory in voivodina (2016.04.13.)

In its coverage of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's visit to Voivodina, local news portal Délhír reported of conditions that would put the North Korean Communist regime to shame. "The PM visited the Europe College of Újvidék (Novi Sad) built with the assistance of the Hungarian state. According to the portal's article, the preparations for the event reminded of Kim Jong-Un's factory visits," Jobbik's vice president István Szávay wrote in his press release on Wednesday.

The Hungarian government must keep away from the Serbian elections! (2016.04.06.)

Jobbik finds it revolting that Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szíjjártó has begun campaigning openly for the Voivodina Hungarian Association (VHA) on behalf of the Hungarian government and, even more astoundingly, for the Serbian Progressive Party.

In Jobbik's view, Fidesz' practice to make suggestions to Hungarians living in the neighbouring countries on behalf of the Hungary's government and tell them which Hungarian organization they should vote for in the elections of their respective states is intolerable. The Hungarian government's job is not to issue dictates from Budapest! On the contrary: the government should remain non-partisan throughout the campaign and, once the elections are over, it should respect the decision of the local Hungarian community, set its relevant policy accordingly, aiming to conduct a dialogue and cooperation with all Hungarian forces that have representatives and significant popular support instead of focusing only on the government's buddies, beneficiaries and satellites.

Ukrainian nationalists threatened the Hungarian minority (2016.03.18.)

Ukraine, Uzhorod – On Sunday the 13th of March, a demonstration of Ukrainian paramilitary nationalists had been held in the streets of Uzhorod, in western Ukraine, near the Hungarian border. Anti-Hungarian slogans were shouted, and Hungarian politicians reacted.

On the 13th of March, in the capital city of Transcarpatian oblast (region), approximately 300 people took part in a demonstration to commemorate the independent state of Carpatho-Ukraine, which had been declared by Avgustyn Voloshyn on March the 14th and ended the same year on the night of March the 15th to March the 16th, due to the Hungarian invasion.

Jobbik'a vice predident banned from Romania again (2016.03.10.)

On 8th March, I was going to travel to Transylvania to attend the Szekler Freedom Day and express my support for the territorial autonomy of Szeklerland. On the days preceding and following the event, I was supposed to hold press conferences and meet local citizens in Kolozsvár (Cluj), Székelyudvarhely (Odorheiu Secuiesc) and Szatmárnémeti (Satu Mare), as well as have other meetings there. After waiting nearly half an hour at Ártánd border station, the Romanian border guard told me that he was not allowed to let me proceed as I had been banned from the country for three years. He also informed me that the ruling against me had been in effect since 21st October, 2015. So, just like in the case of my first ban between March 2014 and March 2015, I was only informed that I was not allowed to enter Transylvanian land when I arrived at the border. I had not received any notification in advance and neither was I informed of the specific reasons for my ban.

Serbian authorities press charges against a sign (2016.02.09.)

The case of István Szávay's opening a representative office in Vojvodina continues. As we reported earlier, Jobbik's vice president was pressed charges against in terms of infraction proceedings because Jobbik's logo and full name was indicated in his Zenta (Senta) office. In fact, it's the office itself that is a thorn in the side of the Serbian state, and now they try to get it closed down on the grounds that the party is not registered in Serbia and therefore must not conduct political activities there.

The second session of the proceedings held in Magyarkanizsa (Kanjiža) on Friday was chaired by a Hungarian speaking judge already (you can read our report of the first session  here), they communicated with each other in Hungarian too, but the official minutes were still taken in Serbian.

Jobbik wants parliament committees to hear Semjen, Szijjarto, Romanian ambassador (2016.01.04.)

Budapest, January 4 (MTI) – The Jobbik party wants parliament’s foreign affairs and national cohesion committees to hear the deputy prime minister, Zsolt Semjen, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto and the Romanian ambassador at a joint extraordinary meeting. The hearings are necessary because several anti-Hungarian measures have been introduced in Romania in recent months, deputy head of Jobbik Istvan Szavay told a press conference on Monday. “Sadly, we have found that Romania took a U-turn in the development of democracy and minority rights in recent months,” he added.
