We, members of the 14 December Co-ordination Committee and Lao Australians
are deeply concerned with the problems of economic and social development in

Canberra is to protest the hydraulic dam projects in Laos.

The truth behind the dictatorial government’s propaganda to build up to six
hydraulic dams along the Nam Theun River was disclosed by Dr. Phairoth
Vongvirath, the Directory of Department No. 1 of the Foreign Affairs
Ministry and a permanent member of the Supreme People’s Congress of Lao PDR,
who sought political asylum in the USA in August 1995.  The truth of the
matter is that the intended hydraulic dams are not all needed by the Lao

Dr. Phairoth Vongvirath disclosed that -
     1. Russian advisers suggested that the Lao Government borrow funds from
the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and from various free world
financial institutions in order to build the dams.  After the money was
release the Lao PDR bought steel wire and other construction materials from
Russia in order to indirectly pay its debt of over $US 700m.  Russia would
also provide its engineers to manage the construction of the dams.

    2. Following the issues of the plans, the dictatorial authority took it
as a pretext and arranged for their comrades to immediately commence
extensive logging.  At this moment, in the area of the proposed site for the
dam, General Cheng Sayavong, head of the mountainous development project,
has ordered the logging and use of helicopters to transport logs from the

"The Sun" - A weekly Thai magazine, October 5, 1995 issue reported that:
=Nam Theun Dam II, when completed would flood up to 360 km2 of leveled land
of Na Kai District.  It would also destroy a third of the ancient pine and
hardwood forests, home to many animals nearing extinction such as tigers,
elephants, white seagulls and the new world animal species discovered just
two years ago, the Sao La  or Vu Qang Ox

=Reports from the International Federation of the Preservation of the
Environments suggests that ‘...all help prevent the destruction of the
animal and plant species and the priceless environments in this heritage

=That the construction of Nam Theun Dam II would require an enormous sum of
money, up to $US 670 m and would be 100% foreign owned as teh Lao PDR was
not able to contribute. The management of the construction of the dams as
well as the sale of the electricity would be transferred to the Lao PDR "The
Nation", a Thai newspaper referred to the World Bank’s reports that the Nam
Theun Dam II Project has met with serious technical, legal, economic, social
and environmental problems.

Hence, we Lao Australian taxpayers whose taxes have contributed to the
Australain aid to Lao PDR appeal for the Australian Aid Program to carefully
consider the conditions for its contribution to the construction of the
above mentioned dam and other aid programs to Laos.

We take this opportunity to condemn the dictatorial power managing group in
Laos for misappropriating foreign financial assistance, whilst doing little
to further the economic and social development of Laos.

Assimilation of minorities, by itself, is not a bad thing.  The question is
how much of the assimilation is voluntary, and how much is forced. 
Voluntary assmilation is good (after all, individual freedom is good). 
Forced assmilation is bad (after all, lack of individual freedom is bad). 
Therefore, showing that one population group is growing quicker than
another really doesn't advance the debate (even if we accept your unstated
(and unproved) premisse that Hungarians and Romanians, on average, have
exactly the same number of children, at exactly the same age).

Yes and no.  After unification, Transylvania's Romanian population was no
longer going to undergo forced Magyarization.  The teachers, clerks and
workers who had been involved in Magyarization were no longer needed.  Of
course they were going to be dismissed.  Asking that they be kept on makes
about as much sence as asking Mandela to keep on the enforcers of
apartheid's race laws.

Land reform was not aimed at the Hungarians.  For example, my Romanian
great grandfather ended up lossing 96% of his net worth in the land reform;
the only reason that he retained 4% was because he'd been honest when
paying his taxes.

Are we supposed to be sorry because there are fewer "statistical
Hungarians"?  I've met many Hungarians in my life, but I've never met a

 Well, for Hungarians Viena was not a "diktat" but for Romanians it was. 
They either had to sign or fight Germany along with Hungary.

Reactionary?  What a familiar word it is to those growing up in communist

reactionaries and I was proud to be among them.  What's your problem

I don't know if you realize this, Alexander, but your posts are a gold
mine for Hungarian counterarguments.  Like the following, for instance.

The kind of statement you made about natural assimilation is usually
flat-out denied when Hungarians say that to explain the same thing you
are trying to.  Hungarians, as we all know, forcibly assimilate others,
"magyarize".  They can't possibly do that the "old fashined way":
naturally.  That's the sole domain of minorities doing it to Magyars.
I wonder why would those uppity Magyars even consider to assimilate into
those oppressed minorities.  Were they out of their mind?

That "else" being a bullet, is only your dream. No doubt the 'martirdom' of
Tokes may be amongst a Magyar revisionist's sweatest desires. What a 
political bonanza, to blame it on the dirty, fundamentalist olahs.

I am merely pointing out that one cannot have it both ways. Of course others
have done it, but that puts them in a different category. They may be still
clergymen, but they are also politicians. 

Now the thrust of the initial inquiry was 'what to I have against Bishop
Tokes.  To that I answered that, consequently to his endevours, I decline
to give him the consideration of a Bishop. Instead, I give him the 
consideration a politician gets. A politician whose politics I don't like.

As such he is open to the criticism, opposition and ridicule that other
public figures in the area custumarily get.

Hi Alexander!

While the figures by themselves don't prove assimilation, they definitely
mirror that something unnatural has been goin on. Let's just take the two ends:

|> >Year  Total(1,000)    Romanians   %    Hungarians   %     Others   %

During these 82 years the number of the Romanian population doubled (what was
the average birth rate during this time?) while that of the Hungarians remained
about the same... Immigartion of Hungarians wasn't a general phenomenon as it
was in the case of Germans and Jews (who have been actually sold by the 
Romanian government) except for the early 20's. But even then a great part of
those leaving Transylvania were the "amerikasok" (that is those who left for
America). And that was a phenomenon pretty general for all (especially eastern
and middle) european counties, even for Romania (which, by the way, doesn't
seem to show in the numbers).

All in one, the figures (if they are for real - and I'd like Anthony to 
give references to support them) show that there have been some unnatural pheno
about the population dynamics of the minorities in Romania. And although this
is no proof by itself, knowing what things were like in the last fourty years,
I dare state that discrimination and forced assimilation are parts of the 
reasons behind these phenomena.

I'm pretty sure this newsgroup is read by lots of people in Hungary,
but somehow lots of postings come from the US.
Perhaps a large portion of Hungarian readers are not fluent enough in

Also, there are only a limited number of topics that necessitate a 
somewhat tedious posting procedure just to be read outside their

That may have been part of it, but there was also a complete unwillingness

I don't have a breakdown between public and parochial schools in
Transylvania.  However, the fact that ONLY parochial schools taught in
Romanian would tend to encourage Romanian parents to send their children to
parochial schools, artifically inflating their number.

In 1867.  How many generations does it take to catch up on one's "long
backlog"?  Couldn't some time have been devoted to the majority of the
population, which wasn't Magyar?  Did so much time have to be devoted to
increasing the amount of time that had to be devoted to Hungarian-language

How about the Krainina?  It was 80 or 90% Serb-populated before the war
broke out.  Large sections of Bosnia had/have Serb majorities.  At least
parts of Slavonia had a Serb majority.  And, Croatia's historic treatment
of minorities (Serbs especially) has been far worse than anything that
either Romanians or Hungarians have practiced.

Because the bulk of Moldavia remains part of Romania.  Only one province

Hi Eva: 
At the risk of seeming completely, irresponsibly, optimistic, let me
suggest that xenophobia can disappear.  The reconciliation between Germany
and France after WWII is the most important example.  I don't see any
reason why a similar reconciliation can't take place between Romanian and
Hungary - though it will invariably take a few generations.

           I have been a "lurker" of sorts in this newsgroup for a while
and curiousity just overwhelmed me. I've often wondered a couple of things
about the inhabitants of this group;

€ Are you hungarian-americans (in general)?
€ Do you live in the U.S or Hungary?

         Those are the pre-liminaries.   (smile). It strikes me that the
common Hungarian is not a particularly happy person a this time, either
economically or socially. As I am planning a stay for a couple of years in
Budapest come May, I'll have more time to investigate......

         Quite frankly, when all this started in 1989, I had thought the
face of Hungary would be much improved by 1996.  Does anyone think it has?

Keri Imre Gonczot vedo irasaban tobb tevedes van.

Kezdjuk ott hogy az egyik legdemokratikusabbnak elismert orszagban,
itt az USA-ban az elnok szemelyi gyongeseget (karakterenek hibait),
pl. hogy Gennifer Flowers-el 12 evig volt viszonya Hillary-val
valo hazassaga alatt, a demokratikus (szabad) sajto teljes nyiltsaggal
tamadta. Nem lehet demokratikus az a sajto, amelyben vezeto politikusok
karakterhibai tabu temak!

Masodszor, teved Keri abban, hogy Goncz-ot a valasztok hoztak ki
Koztarsasagi Elnoknek, vagy hogy a valasztok tobbsege voksolt volna ra
akarmikor is. Goncz az 1990-es KISEBBSEGI part, az SZDSZ embere, es
az a "paktum" hozta hatalomba, melyet Antallnak azert kellett megkotnie,
mert a liberalisok maris kivontak $600 milliot M.o.-rol, jelezven hogy
megbuktatjak Antallt ha nem pariroz az SZDSZ-nek. (Elso honapjaiban,
raadasul pont halalos betegsegenek elso mutete alatt az illegalisan
eroszakkal veghezvitt "taxisblokaddal" majdnem sikerult is megtenniuk,
majd tobbek kozt a belpolitikaba valo kulso beavatkozassal szep rendesen

valasztott Koztarsasagi Elnok hazudik, a nepnek demokraciakban teljes joga
megvan ra hogy kifutyulje, es hogy hazugsagait a (nyomaiban meg reszben
szabad) magyar sajto "Demokrata" c. hetilapja kiszerkessze. Hasonlokeppen
teljes joga van a "hazorzo kutya" szerepet jatszo sajtonak, hogy a Gonczrol
kiszivargott ertesuleseket, hogy bortonevei alatt besugo ("Patkany") volt,
"investigative reporting"-gal kivizsgalja. Ha Goncz nem volt Patkany,
megilleti hogy neverol e becstelenseg letorlodjek, mig ha Patkany volt,
menjen a fenebe.

Hillary Clintont pl. ugyancsak nem a nep valasztotta pl. olyan tevekenysegekre
hogy az USA gazdasaganak mintegy 1/3-at kitevo egeszsegugyet a szocializmus

jatszik, az USA sajto ugy latja, joguk van olyan erosen nekimenni, melyhez
kepest a magyar sajto es politikum harmatos ibolya. Igy pl. eppen a
napokban nevezte William Safire (igen jol ismert jurnaliszta, a New York
Times egyik kolumnistaja is), Hillary Clintont "szuletett hazudozo"-nak
(congenital liar).

Szerintem Keri Imre jobban tenne, ha nem "ujabb es ujabb" tabu-temakat
igyekezne a magyar sajtora es politikumra raeroltetni, hanem EPPEN A
DEMOKRACIA ERDEKEBEN inkabb a sajtoszabadsag otthon "veszelyeztetett

Hi Eva: 
Actually, I wouldn't count Poland or Hungary in the same breath as the rest
of the ex-Soviet block.  While they do have reformed communists in power,
they are REFORMED.  Countries like Romania would be significantly more
democratic and pleasant places to live in if they had REFORMED communists,
rather than NEO-communists.  Also, Russia, Ukraine, etc. have been
communist during the life of almost every citizen.  Consequently, there
transition back to capitalism will be very much harder process than it is
for those countries only communized at the end of the Second World War. 
But, regardless of whether the communists are reformed or neo, they no
longer have the kind of totalitarian system supporting them.  In a country
like Romania, there is now an oppposition (or should we say there are now
many oppositions).  That is a very major improvement over the situation
before the Christmas revolution, when there hardly was a dissident
movement.  Because there is an opposition, there are now non-communists to
take power.  And, eventually, they will, either democratically (thanks to
western and popular pressure), or as a result of a second revolution.

I hope this is not too late.

Ro'mai is the biggest site III. (district) Szentendrei u't 189, along the 
Danube north to the centre.  Phone: (+36-1) 168-6260. There are 40 bungalows,
open all year.

In the Buda Hills there are three sites:

Ha'rshegyi (Ha'rshegyi u't 7, phone 115-1482) is said to be the best.  They 
have 80 bungalows, open April to October, accessible by bus 22 terminating at 
Moszkva te'r.

Zugligeti Niche (Zugligeti u't 101, phone 156-8641) is closest to the city (bus
No 158 to Moszkva te'r).  Open April-October, no bungalows, few caravan sites

Tu~nde'rhegyi (II. Szilasi ut 8, no phone in my guidebook) has bungalows, open
all year.  Bus No. 28 from Moszkva te'r. 

I booked a site in the Zugligeti for my now father in law, by phone, from 
Australia, last February in the Zugligeti: all worked out well, they got the 
caravan site with power connection that they wanted, liked the place, the
people in the office could speak English, the restaurant is pretty reasonable.
