25 May 2018: many have marked this date on their calendars.

EU citizens are about to enter a new era, yet few are aware of it.

SchoolAn education system that segregates children based on their ethnicity unfortunately still exists in the 21st century in the heart of Europe. Motivated by the cases of children who decide to fight and the children segregation in buses, which took place at the beginning of this school year (2017/2018), I feel responsible to discuss this issue. I want you to be aware of this problem and fight it!

Hungarian voteHungarians should brace themselves; elections are coming…On 8 April, general elections are taking place in Hungary. According to the polls, 45% of voters have indicated they still support the current PM and his ruling party. However, 46% have indicated they want a change in government. This high level of support for change is a new development in Hungarian politics. Corruption scandals, anti-EU policy measures and xenophobic rhetoric have made some voters turn away from Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party (Alliance for Young Democrats) and mobilised some of the passive ones the past few years. But despite the growing criticism, the governing party is still in the lead. How is this possible? Is there any hope for the opposition or is the game already over?
