Freedom of movement and the media in Hungary (part 1)

Since taking office in 2010, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has come under fire from other European leaders for his increasing authoritarian stance, notably in relation to press freedom and most recently because of the migrant crisis. In September, Hungary erected a wire fence along its border with Serbia and gave police the right to arrest anyone crossing into the country. FRANCE 24 travels to Hungary and meets with young Hungarians to see what they make of it all.
