(Worthy News) – Hungary’s government is going the extra mile to spread its propaganda ahead of elections next year: It’s forcing students to watch a government-friendly film about a former prime minister who lied and still plays a vital role in the opposition.
Fast-moving scenes include young freedom fighters facing a brutal police force. This isn’t an action movie. Hungarian youngsters aren’t streaming it on Netflix; they’re being made to watch it in school.
In at least one town, some students refusing to attend the screening received an unexcused absence which could lead to sanctions.
