Fighting against Hungary's 'slave laws'

Opposition MP Tamas Harangozo on why he's protesting inside the state broadcaster's HQ
Hungary's government is facing the most serious threat yet to its increasingly autocratic policies. Protesters gathered again for a sixth day on Monday to hold a rally outside the state broadcaster MTVA's headquarters after opposition politicians were forcibly dragged out by security forces. Around ten opposition members of the parliament have spent over 24 hours in the building trying to broadcast a petition against new labour laws deemed 'slave laws'. Newsday's Kriszta Satori spoke to one of those inside, Tamas Harangozo, an MP and deputy faction leader of the Socialist party.
