Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Dodging border fences and defacing anti-immigrant billboards in Hungary.


In June, Hungary came out with billboards all around the city that said 'If you come to Hungary, don't take Hungarian jobs,' and 'If you come to Hungary, you have to respect the culture and rules of Hungary.' But these things were written in Hungarian.

Live from Budapest, Todd Williams explains why Hungary's new fence on the Serbian border is as much about EU bureaucracy as it is border enforcement, and how Viktor Orban's anti-immigrant messaging lost the meme battle to billboard defacers.
