Debate in Vienna: Mercedes Echerer, Otmar Lahodynsky, Marton Gulyas

In Vienna’s "Theater in der Drachengasse", the Hungarian drama "Day of Wrath" by Arpad Schilling and Eva Zabezsinszkij was successfully staged. AEJ-President Otmar Lahodynsky took part in a debate with political activist Marton Gulyas and director Mercedes Echerer. Gulyas criticized the Hungarian government and hailed the new unity of opposition-parties for the forthcoming European and local elections. The recent conglomerate of over 400 Hungarian publications under one ownership was criticized as another violation of media freedom in Hungary. Foto: Edward Steen
