Hungarian Activists Smother Signs With Stickers
Some Hungarian Slovaks in the south of the country are calling for signposts also to be in Hungarian, even though the law does not demand it.
The activists from the so-called Bilingual Slovakia initiative have launched a campaign where they are putting stickers in places where they feel names should also be in Hungarian, reports daily SME today.
They have placed literally thousands of stickers already in Samorin, Dunajska Streda and Komarno on every possible signpost, notice board, etc. and in the windows of shops that back the idea. Some of the shops have even included Hungarian now on their notices. The organisation says its aim is to preserve the visual presence of their mother tongue Hungarian.
