MigSzol was happy to join Negyed7Negyed8’s Blaha Port because we know that many people living in the 7 and 8th districts of Budapest are not Hungarian citizens - and oftentimes they face many problems, for example the many challenges when they apply to become Hungarian citizens.
Those who played our game at the Blaha Port quickly learned that as recognised refugees they could only apply for citizenship after 3 years of living in Hungary. For this, they need many documents as proof of their accommodation and employment in Hungary. Yet, even with the fulfilment of all of these and other requirements there is no automatic success. Blaha gamers found that they could easily just roll the dice one more time, but in real life it can mean years of frustration.
We, in MigSzol, think that it’s unacceptable that the Hungarian state plays with other people’s lives like this and we support a fairer system to attain citizenship that is available to all who live in Hungary.
