Hungarian Cartoonists Under Pressure

Over at the Cartoon Movement blog I interview three Hungarian cartoonists about a repressive new media law put in place by the right-wing government.
Bors: Is this seen as an outrageous overreach that will be reversed or only the beginning of a more long-lasting and further reaching campaign against a free press. Gábor: Around me most people feel that they are in this for the long haul, and that the government will exert a total control of public speech. This, however, is destined to fail, and even if their plans for a single-party constitution materialize, the quickly eroding power will be followed by a first constitutional amendment, which will be about freedom of speech in Hungary too.
