MI HAZÁNK CALLS FOR BOYCOTT OF COCA-COLA OVER GAY ACCEPTANCE ADS

The Mi Hazánk party has called for a boycott of Coca-Cola over the company's recently-launched advertisement campaign promoting gay acceptance.
 

László Toroczkai, the leader of the radical nationalist party, said that Mi Hazánk would organise protests on a weekly basis and encourage supporters to join its boycott on Coca-Cola products unless the US-based soft-drink maker “stops promoting homosexuality”. Toroczkai held a press conference in front of the US multinational’s premises in Dunaharaszti near Budapest, and insisted that the company was campaigning for same-sex marriage in two countries and was a supporter of a local gay pride festival in a number of countries. Mi Hazánk believes a soft drink company “has no business involving itself in politics or interfering in other people’s private lives and its job is not to try to strengthen forms of social deviance”, Toroczkai went on to say.

The politician called on Coca-Cola to “return to its own field of business”. The company, he said, should “not attack families, traditional values or society”. As his party’s first act of protest, Toroczkai poured Coca-Cola products offered up by Mi Hazánk’s supporters out onto the pavement in front of the company’s premises.
