PM Orbán addresses crowd of unprecedented numbers: “Our biggest battle is about to begin”

| April 3, 2018

“One hundred and seventy years ago was the day when the Hungarian word for freedom, szabadság, entered the world’s lexicon” – said PM Orbán in his March 15th address before a crowd estimated in the hundreds of thousands to commemorate the 170th anniversary of Hungary’s 1848 Revolution and War of Independence.

“Over the last 30 years we have fought many great battles,” the prime minister said, “but our biggest battle is about to begin.” PM Orbán said, alluding to the fact that on 8 April Hungarians will go to the polls and cast a ballot that will decide Hungary’s fate not only for the next four years.

Hungary’s citizens remain strongly opposed to liberal immigration policies, he said, adding that Hungarians should be proud that their government stood out as the only one in the European Union that asked the citizens for their input on the question of immigration.

“If the dike collapses and the water flows in,” he said, “the cultural conquest will become irreversible.” The country cannot afford to lose this battle because we may not get another chance.
