12/10/2022 | 17:58:34 I believe the report itself has the answers to many of the points that were put here. But I want to make just two or three points. First of all, in this report, dear Chair – and I assume that most reports, all reports, that the Council of Europe makes – is to ensure the rights, the voices, the sense of justice, the protection of each and every one. In this case, of each and every Hungarian citizen. This is not against Hungary. This is in favour of each and every Hungarian citizen. That is... 12/10/2022 | 17:06:52 Thank you very much, after that very interesting debate. We change gears to Hungary. Hungary is a beautiful country with a proud people. In this report we evaluate the compliance of its government with the principles Hungary itself has signed on to those of the Council of Europe.

Under despotic or authoritarian regimes, citizen felt oppressed, minorities excluded or persecuted, any sense of justice, equality, and freedom squashed. The imprint that this is left on our collective consciousness is that, when in trouble, we look for a big brother protector or... 15/03/2022 | 20:04:13 On February 24th, this war seemed to be but a bad dream, yet we woke up to a nightmare that was real when we believed we would never again see on this continent. The first reaction of many of us was a big "why?". Why such irrationality, megalomania, brutality, and fratricidal cold-blooded war? Then the "why" became a big "no". A "no" of indignation, a "no" to the lies and fake news, a "no" to the destruction of cities, a "no" to the unimaginable suffering, war crimes, deaths of innocent...
