On many occasions over the last few years, issues surrounding the placement, displacement or removal of statues and monuments in public places have found themselves on Hungary’s political agenda:

  • Occupation Monument (WW2) on Freedom Square in Budapest
  • Refurbishing of Kossuth Square in Budapest
  • Hóman statue (removed)
  • Donáth monument project (failed)

In an article for Get the Trolls Out, Dóra Ónody-Molnár explains the controversy around them and who is benefitting from it.

FuryLogosmallCartoon by Ruben L. Oppenheimer for Get the Trolls Out!

Tyson Fury, world heavyweight champion from Britain, was filmed making antisemitic comments in a video posted online earlier this month. In his latest rant, an hour-long clip, he said: “Zionist, Jewish people ... own all the banks, all the papers, all the TV stations”.

After sparking outrage, Fury has apologised for his offensive comments.

Fury has previously been accused of sexism and homophobia. Last year, many called for him to be dropped from the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year shortlist after a video emerged of the new heavyweight boxing champion making a series of sexist remarks.

Our editorial cartoonist Ruben Oppenheimer has drawn this cartoon for Get the Trolls Out!
