Őcsényi videónk angolul is: The villagers were so horrified of the refugees that they even banished their mayor
Készítettünk angol feliratot Őcsényben forgatott videónkhoz, amely egyetlen eseményben mutatja meg a kormányzati gyűlöletkampány hatását. (See the English version below.)
In the tiny village of Őcsény, locals turned to intimidation to prevent a motel owner from inviting a few refugees to stay for a couple of days at his inn as a gesture of charity. The people from the village have never met any refugees, they only know about them through the media.
The Orbán government has been running a hate campaign for two years that made people believe that refugees rape women and children, rob their houses and kill people. In a heated village meeting, locals threatened the owner of the motel and the arriving refugees who would arrive to the village despite their opposition. The locals’ accusations against refugees resonate with the state-run propaganda campaign: George Soros is responsible for the flood of refugees in Europe and all migrants are terrorists.
The escalation of the made the mayor resign. He had been the village leader for 11 years and had brought investment and prosperity to the community. The once peaceful village has become a place of conflict and fear.
The people who would have stayed at the motel were women and children who have been given legal asylum status by the Hungarian authorities. After the incident, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán defended the illegal actions of the locals.
