Watch: 71% of Young Hungarians Think Corruption & Success Are Linked

A new video campaign in Hungary explores youth sentiments about corruption, what journalists think of political independence and more.
Mérték Médiaelemző Műhely's (media analysis workshop) campaign is on topics concerning all citizens. We have already covered the campaign in a previous article presenting Mérték's video on democracy.

At the end of the film, shocking data is cited with reference to Transparency International's survey: 71 percent of young people think that it is hard to succeed in Hungary without corruption.

Watch all the videos of the campaign, and take action so that your country will never become such a disappointing place with respect to these issues.
