The refugees submitted their petition to the Ministry of Interior one day before their first protest day. In their petition, they described their hopeless situation, formulated their demands and asked concrete questions what kind of help the Government would give them ( here is the petition). Their main demands were affordable and fairly accessible housing, fair job opportunities including the legal possibility to prove their work skills in practice in absence of school certificates, and adequate health care. They claimed that the policy of the camp is not suitable for successfully integrating them into the society: the Hungarian language courses provided in the camp are of low quality, they do not have a fair possibility to enter the job market and their post-camp money support (this is connected to the number of classes they attend in the camp) is unfair and rarely enough to survive. They emphasized that many refugees fear that the unjust housing regulations will leave them homeless.
The refugees handed in a copy of their petition to the Ministry of Interior also in person. The Ministry responded the same day with merely having copied the text of the law describing what supports the refugees can get. The refugees, being disappointed and unsatisfied with the empty and cynical answer, decided to protest again in front of the Parliament 3 days later. The video, which was recorded on their second protest day, was watched almost 11.000 times, making their event the most visible action ever made by refugees in Hungary.
After the protests in November 2012, no refugees were moved out from the temporary integration camp – but according to the Government not due to their protests, but due to the usual moratorium which prohibits evicting people out of the camp during winter.
