Hungary: Cross erected in front of Lidl supermarket to protest against the supermarket’s censorship of Christian symbols

A big Christian cross has been put up in front of a Lidl supermarket in Budapest, Hungary to protest against supermarket’s marketing policies of censuring Christian symbols from its packaging ‘not to hurt the sensibility of non-Christian costumers‘. Hungarian activists first drew crosses with candlesticks in front of the supermarket before raising a Christian cross.

Lidl removed a cross from an image on its packaging representing the landscape of an orthodox church in the Greek island of Santorini at the beginning of September 2017 and also from its packaging representing the church of Dolceacqua in Imperia (Italy).
