Racist hate speech has become widespread and has even creeped into the courtrooms in Hungary. The immediate urgency of the project was spurred by the judgement of the Békés County Court of March 27 2014, which condoned the anti-Roma hate speech according to which there was "Gypsy criminality." The objective of the project was to facilitate active citizenship, active speaking out against hate speech, raising public awareness, and exercising public pressure for concrete political measures.
Participants of the actions sent postcards and e-cards to Erika Mucsi judge, viktor Orbán prime minister, Zoltán Balog and Tibor Navracsics ministers. The cards called on the judge to publicly apologize from her Roma compatriots and asked the representatives of the government to step up against hate speech and not to tolerate hate speech among officials who exercise public authority.
