Budapest, July 10 (MTI) – The goal of the ongoing information campaign connected to the government-sponsored referendum on the European Union’s migrant quotas is to alert the public to “the dangers of the erroneous migration policies” pursued by Brussels, a government official said on Monday.
Bence Tuzson, state secretary for government communications at the cabinet office, said in a statement that the government’s information campaign concerning the popular vote on the “forced settlement” of migrants is entering into a new phase.
New messages will be seen on outdoor advertisement hoardings, in the press and online, as well as on broadcast media, he noted. They focus on the government’s rejection of any fines levied by the European Commission against non-compliance as well as drawing attention to the dangers of terrorism and the threat to Hungarian culture and traditions that migrants bring with them, he said.
At the same time, migrants do not present a solution to economic or demographic problems, he insisted. The campaign will highlight growing migration pressure from year to year, he said, adding that instead of forced settlement, the bloc’s borders should be protected.
