Refugees from the Bicske reception center in Hungary demonstrated in front of the Parliament on the 20th and 23rd of November 2012. Their message to the government was that integration is impossible within the present framework.
It is almost impossible for them to receive subsidies because of the impossible conditions. For most of them this 6 month long ‘integration’ means even more uncertainty. The medical help they receive is neither adequate nor enough and the current number of social workers is too few. In this uncertain environment they are also expected to integrate, to start a new life from a position of multiple disadvantages while recovering from trauma caused by persecution and escape. The organisers gave a petition to the Ministry of Interior.
