PHOTOS, VIDEO: Opposition party removed fence in front of Orbán’s office
Politicians and supporters of opposition Momentum on Tuesday removed the metal fence in front of the prime minister’s office, today’s action being the sixth time they have done so.
Momentum said in a statement that despite “the police overreactions and tear gas attacks” of recent days, the party has once again removed the “unlawfully erected fence” in front of the former Carmelite Monastery, which houses the prime minister‘s office, in the Castle District. Today’s action was held to mark Europe Day, they said. “Removing the fence is removing the regime,” Momentum said. “There is no place for a fence in a European country, and on May 9, on Europe Day, we removed the fence,” it added.
The party’s lawmakers and politicians arrived in the company of around 50 activists at the prime minister’s office at 7am in the morning, and they plan to guard over the removed fence for several hours, Momentum said. “We will keep removing the fence as long as this is necessary,” it said. “It stands unlawfully, separating the government from the people and from reality,” it added. “In reality, Hungary has European record-high inflation at 25 percent, health care and education have been destroyed and the government keeps misleading people with constant lies,” Momentum said.

Dobrev: Hungary has highest inflation, among lowest wages in Europe
Hungary has the highest inflation in Europe, and when it comes to wages, it trails near the bottom, opposition DK’s MEP and shadow prime minister Klara Dobrev said on Monday. Dobrev told a public forum in Szombathely that wages were higher even in neighbouring countries like Slovakia and Romania, which, she insisted, was the fault of Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his government. She said that over a decade, when European Union funding would have allowed the revamping of all hospitals and schools — making education competitive and bringing wages up to a fair level in order to close the gap with the rest of Europe — the money instead went to the oligarchs of the Orban government.
The majority of Hungarians still want Hungary to belong to the EU and NATO, and they want a European standard of living, she added. Dobrev said the reason that Hungarians faced food prices that many of them could not afford and people’s living standards had dropped was not the sanctions and the war but the ill-fated economic policies of the Orban government.
The government should force the disrupters to reinstall the fence and pay for it.
“Removing the fence is removing the regime.” Here’s a clue, champ (or more appropriately: chump): The “regime” is removed at the ballot box. You want the government to change? Run for office. Oh, that’s right: You did. And you got creamed. Bad. Multiple times. Maybe because you’re working for the globalist-socialist sleazeballs rather than the ordinary Hungarians. Maybe the people of Hungary are not interested in Klaus Schwab’s and George Soros’ vision of the world, with open borders, greenery, wokery, transery, etc. Maybe we don’t want to live in cold shoeboxes, eating bugs, not being allowed to travel or even own a car, being scared to walk our own cities’ streets in case we’re assaulted by a bunch of “New Europeans”… – while they swan around in their private jets and megayachts, feasting on sumptuous steak and lobster, protected by armed bodyguards. Just maybe!
You two must work for the Hungarian government. There’s no other way possible. I completely stand by Momentum. They are telling the truth, unlike Fidesz. Fidesz stole billions of EU money (your money as well since Szijjarto and Varga like to use this as an argument to get the EU funds) to make their friends richer. “while they swan around in their private jets and megayachts, feasting on sumptuous steak and lobster, protected by armed bodyguards. Just maybe!”

Maybe Momentum would have won elections if the ordinary Hungarians were not spoon-fed lies on a daily basis on TV and radio. Whenever we hear the government, the economy is doing great. Reality is that it is not.
@Renault, I agree wholeheartedly with your comments. Reading other articles, it seems Fidesz supporters are now being referred to as “the brainwashed” or “brain dead idiots”. Refreshing. People have had enough of the lies and misuse of funds of this government.
Renault, unlike most protestors who are paid for by leftist globalist EU supporters and leftist media puppets, I personally never met Prime Minister Orban, never voted for him or FIDESZ. However, I do appreciate a national government that cares for the people and refuses to cede sovereignty to leftist socialists. No government is perfect but if you compare the chaos in the EU and US, Hungary’s policies of law and order makes sense. Hungary is a relatively poor nation, lacking minerals and energy, its wealth is the quality of the people. Hungary is also not connected to slavery, oppression of colonies like Belgium, Holland, Germany, France. Hungary’s hand is certainly not bloodied like the rest of the EU countries, including Austria.
