Orosz minta alapján indított frontális támadást a szólásszabadság és a gyermekjogok ellen a kormány

Yesterday, June 10, the Hungarian ruling party, Fidesz, introduced an amendment that would severely restrict freedom of speech and children’s rights by banning LGBTQI-themed educational programs and public service advertisements. Out of  Hungarian LGBTQI people, 42% have thought about suicide and 30% have attempted it. This new amendment - which eerily mimics the Russian propaganda law - would further poison public opinion.

Háttér Society and Labrisz Lesbian Association will challenge the discriminatory ruling in court.
