Join AVM’s March for Housing Rights, on October 8th !
The issue of homelessness has been one of the core concerns since the beginning of Migszol as a group. Migszol grew out of protests by a group of Afghani refugees in 2012 who were demonstrating against the threat of becoming homeless after having to leave the Bicske refugee camp. The Hungarian state back then and until now has consistently failed in its duties, under international law and basic moral decency, to provide adequate social assistance to refugees in Hungarian society. The lack of social services and money to help people start a life in Hungary, after they received their legal status of refugee in Hungary led to extremely precarious living conditions. The sad reality is that, for years now, many refugees in Hungary have been at risk of being homeless and for many refugees this has been one of the main reasons why they saw themselves forced to move on to another country.
