Francia sigue expulsando gitanos


Las autoridades francesas evacuaron ayer a unas 200 personas de dos campamentos gitanos en las afueras de Lille, en el norte de Francia, mientras que unos 250 rumanos tomaron un vuelo chárter a su país desde Lyon, en lo que las asociaciones humanitarias denuncian como expulsiones disfrazadas. El nuevo Gobierno socialista, bajo la autoridad del presidente François Hollande, da así continuidad a la polémica política impulsada hace dos años por el exmandatario Nicolas Sarkozy, que fue muy criticada por la entonces oposición socialista. El Ministerio del Interior alega motivos sanitarios y busca un cambio de tono al insistir en la necesidad de buscar alternativas para los desalojados.

Czech Authorities Must Prevent a Forced Eviction of Roma Families


(Washington, D.C.) – Amnesty International today called on Czech authorities to prevent forcibly evicting dozens of Roma families living in rental accommodations in the north-eastern Czech town of Ostrava this weekend.
On Friday morning, the head of Ostrava’s construction office delivered an eviction notice to more than 40 Roma families living in rented housing on Prednadrazi Street, giving them just over 24 hours to leave the premises voluntarily. If the inhabitants fail to leave, they risk having the police enforce the eviction order.
Since local authorities provided only a day’s notice, the human rights organization is concerned that it will amount to an illegal forced eviction. Thirty families with have not been provided alternative housing arrangements yet.
“If an eviction is found to be the only workable option, nobody should be left homeless,” said Jezerca Tigani, Europe and Central Asia deputy program director at Amnesty International. “The authorities must ensure that any alternative accommodation complies with the criteria for adequate housing.”
International criteria for adequate alternative housing include stipulations on the size, affordability and location of the accommodation, as well as its accessibility to essential services.

Slovakia's forced sterelization of Roma


May 2003
Slovakia's Roma population has always had a difficult life. Regarded as culturally inferior, they are discriminated against at all levels. Now evidence suggests they are being sterilised against their will. Ingrid Ginova was just 16 when doctors sterilised her without her knowledge. When she publicised her plight, police threatened to imprison her. Her story gives added weight to a new report stating that Romany women have been sterilised for decades without their consent.
