We protested - in advance - yesterday against the Hungarian new rule, introduced on 1st of July.
The Hungarian Health Authority protects us to death Angry

Where the death is business, there the life is sin

Yesterday e-cigarette users protested in front of the Ministry of Health. With black balloons they were protesting in front of the ministry A few dozen of protesters demonstrated that the Criminal Rule, based on 1 July amendments, took effect production and distribution of nicotine e-cigarettes without a license in Hungary was a crime.

Thank you so much for posting about this and for the pics...

Black Balloons
by Gerso..

lyrics

Black Balloons

Nicotine replacement therapy, what's all that about?
Do they want to kill us? It seems yes, without a doubt.
We can smoke cigarettes or cigars they're fine for all of us.
They want to take our e-cigs and won't lift the ban on Snus.
But now we've flexed our muscles to take them on in Brussels.
We're gonna burst 200 black balloons.

Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons.

We've all got our e-cigs and our favourite juice. We're gonna take a little trip today.
We're going to St Pancras to catch a Eurostar, and pretty soon we'll be on our way.
We're going to Brussels, look out Brussels town, the vapers will be arriving soon.
We are all united, we're coming uninvited to protest and to burst a black ballon.

Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons.

Cigarettes are dangerous everybody knows, they kill at least two thousand everyday.
We vapers are determined to make our voices heard. Please don't take our e-cigs away.
Our protest will be peaceful, we want the world to know that vaping will surely come to pass
Politicians just don't get it they want our e-cigs banned. They've got all their fatheads up their ****.

Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons.

We're sick of being treated like lots of naughty kids. Its the kind of thing that every grown-up hates.
Please remove your heads from where the sun don't shine. We really don't need your nanny states.

Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons.
Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons.
Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons.
Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons.
Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. (Fade Out)
But now we've flexed our muscles to take them on in Brussels.
We're gonna burst 200 black balloons.

Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons. Black balloons.

Man Down, Man Down !

Suspended on twitter pending appeal.

Our opposition get to say what they like and post misinformation to spread around by mass reweets but we are blocked when we try to fight our side.

I am me, nobody else. . . .

Wishing the best and good luck for tomorrow.
We should all show solidarity to all vapers leaving in countries where a ban on e-cigarettes has been imposed or will be imposed.

RE: Brussels Balloon Protest
To put it simply it didn't go well on the votes. Amendment 57 won the day 45 to 25. The worst result in my opinion. Now it goes to plenary. It is an uphill struggle we have ahead of us.

Lots more stages to go yet though and we still have the courts at the end as well.

Doesn't seem to be on the telly much yet either.

Long and short of it is that we need to up the action and make sure the power brokers involved are exposed in a loud and publicised way that leaves them out in the open.
