I am a journalist and editor at the foreign desk of Nepszava. As a Cuban-Hungarian my mission is to show people the world from different perspectives.

How to slow down at Christmas 

Most Hungarians are still familiarizing themselves with the slow movement. There are slow restaurants and workshops on slow parenting, but this is probably the first time that slow Christmas has been widely celebrated in Budapest.

It is no accident that Xenophobia is on the rise in Hungary 

New research confirms that Hungarians are quick to reject any immigrant, even when he comes from a fictional country. Though this sentiment is not new to Hungarians, it is being skillfully inflated by politicians.

#Human_Rights in 2017: A slap in the face

Reading the Declaration of Human Rights today is like getting slapped in the face. We have drifted dangerously far from that ideal. Can we stop mankind from repeating its gravest mistakes?

Are pensioners the answer to the labor shortage in Hungary?

In some countries, pensioners spend their years of well-deserved retirement travelling to exotic countries, relaxing in spas and trekking. Hungarian seniors, however, are lured back to the job market.

Hungary -- no country for NGOs

For the past 11 years, the organization EEA had been operating flawlessly. Overnight, it became an outcast because it is funded by George Soros, the government's number one enemy.

A common enemy unites the Hungarian liberals and the far-right

If someone told me a year ago that the Hungarian liberal opposition would join the far-right party, Jobbik, during a manifestation, I would not have believed it. But this is exactly what is going to happen today.

Budapest Public Transport is near inacessible to the disabled

In an interview with Nepszava, Daniel Csango described all the difficulties he and other people with reduced mobility face due to the lack of accessible facilities -- e.g. elevators -- in the Budapest public transport system.

The Hungarian Roma hero who has never received justice

After a long and undignified ordeal, Bela Puczi, the „Roma hero” who protected Hungarians during a pogrom was finally commemorated with a plaque. Although he is considered a hero, he has never been treated like one.

Hungarian government's dashed hopes for approval from Trump

Thomas O. Melia made it clear that criticism coming from the highest ranked member of the US Embassy in Hungary, the Chargé d’Affaires, are not personal remarks -- they reflect Washington's official position.

Hungary banishes disabled citizens to remote areas

Far away from the sight of people, preferably in remote villages -- that is the appropriate place for disabled citizens according to their government. The controversial move is being financed with EU funds.

George Soros breaks his silence 

George Soros, the Hungarian-American financier, is tired of being portrayed as the devil himself by the Hungarian government. He launched an information campaign telling people the truth about his work and the NGOs affiliated with him.

The woman who declared war on cancer

A career in science or a family? That is a choice Patrizia Paterlini-Bréchot, scientist and professor of cell biology and oncology, had to make in Italy in the 1970s. After “Italy forced her” to make the tough decision, she chose science.

NGOs denied permits to help the poor in public

According to NGOs, the Fidesz party is already planning for the next general election this spring and therefore does not want potential voters to see long queues of hungry people waiting for a plate of hot soup.

Hungarian government unwilling to take a stand against gender violence

Hungary is led by an administration whose members imply, both in speech and actual policy, that the main duty of women is to give birth (to as many children as possible -- definitely more than one), and obey their husband.

Dismantling civil war -- Why do neighbors start killing each other?

Writer Janne Teller warns that “either the moderates keep together [in Europe], or extremists will split us up.” As a scholar of the Balkan war believes that history is on the brink of repeating itself.

Hungary's bravest educational activist is only 19 years old

Though Bendeguz Bradanovics is not yet 20 years old, he sends chills down the spine of the Minister of Human Capacities whenever he speaks in public. Despite his young age, he has long been a critic of the Hungarian education system.

Thousands of homeless Hungarians face winter without shelter

A few years ago, the biggest cities banned the homeless from living on the streets. Most citizens backed this initiative. Even though they know it is not a solution, they literally prefer not to face the problem each day.

It is not easy to check out from Mama Hotel 

There are some young adults who find it convenient to have “room service” and hot meals every day, but the majority of them are forced to live at home. Buying or even renting an apartment has become a fantasy for many young Hungarians.

Putin's bid for an EU Trojan Horse

The outcome of Hungarian elections will be crucial to Vladimir Putin. Not only because he needs populist politicians that can be used as Trojan horses in the EU. His business interests also mean he needs to make sure the "right" candidate wins.

Hungarian politician replaces pastor during mass

Although the close relationship between the Church and the Fidesz party is not a new phenomenon, the appearance of a politician at a pulpit is unprecedented. It implies that the Hungarian ruling party has the grace of God.
