Shame on Hungary and on Canada


The discrimination of the Roma is by far not limited to Hungary, they face discrimination all over Europe but the reason that I am focusing on the Hungarian Roma is because soon they may have no place to go as many who were seeking asylum in Canada are being sent back and the doors for Roma asylum seekers in Canada are about to be all but closed.

Attacks on Roma Community in Canada

http://www.thestar.com/opinion/editorialopinion/article/1257206--stop-vilifying-roma-refugees

"... If this were just an isolated eruption of ignorance and xenophobia, it would probably best be ignored, left to decompose in a heap of ignominious publicity grabs. Unfortunately, however, such attacks on the Roma community in Canada are becoming all too common, and they increasingly come from public officials, from whom we can — and must — demand more."

Organizaciones gitanas de Rumanía acusaron hoy de racismo al ministro francés del Interior, Manuel Valls, por haber declarado que Francia "no puede acoger toda la miseria del mundo", en relación a la emigración de esta minoría.

"Es una declaración, como mínimo, desafortunada, que puede ser fácilmente calificada de racista", dijo a Efe Gelu Duminica, director del colectivo por los derechos de los roma.

"Son profundamente racistas", criticó más contundentemente el presidente de la Alianza Cívica Democrática de los Roma (ACDR), Marian Daragiu, según recoge la agencia Mediafax.

WORLD ROMA ORGANIZATION RROMANIPEN appeals

WORLD ROMA ORGANIZATION RROMANIPEN APPEALS ON SYSTEMATIC FINDING OF SOLUTION FOR THE ROMA MIGRANTS IN FRANCE



Belgrade, 17th August 2012 – Regarding the expulsion of more than 300 Roma from the camps around Lille, Lyon and Paris that happened last week in France, World Roma Organization with great regret ascertains that actions undertook by the French authorities do not represent discontinuity with the broad criticized procedures of Nicolas Sarkozy’s administration, who expelled in 2010 around 10.000 Roma from France.

We appeal to the president of France François Hollande to follow his commitments from the election campaign and to not perform expulsions and dismantling of camps without prior solving of housing issues of concerned families. In addition, we remind him on the letter from March this year addressed to RomEurope, in which he denounced previous Sarkozy’s policy towards Roma for creation of situation of intolerable precariousness for Roma communities.

What is necessary to do on the level of local communities is systematic solving of question of alternative housing of Roma families before they are expelled, so that they wouldn’t be brought into unenviable position.

World Roma Organization greets idea that was presented today by the French minister of interior Manuel Valls about facilitating of limitations for employment of citizens of Bulgaria and Romania, since the great number of Roma in France is coming exactly from these two mentioned countries.

American Council for Romani Equality Meets with Hungary Embassy, Discuss Racist Threats in Hungary


Human rights activists, led by the American Council for Romani Equality meet with Hungary embassy officials to express concern over rising racism and life threats against the Roma ethnic minority in Hungary. This is the first time in years that Roma American organizations are demanding dialogue with the Hungarian government. 


Racist groups have increased activity in Hungary in recent months, including large-scale marches through neighborhood where ethnic minority Roma live. Neo-Nazis have bused their supporters into minority areas to march and shout death threats. At a recent anti-Roma demonstration in the town of Cegled, members of the national parliament even took part.


Grupos racistas aumentaram sua atividade na Hungria, nos últimos meses. Em uma manifestação com ameaças anti-ciganos na cidade de Cegled, membros do parlamento húngaro participaram.

Hungary nationalists whip up anti-Roma feelings

The authorities are not enforcing laws banning the incitement of hatred, leaving Roma to face abuse by paramilitaries linked to Jobbik, which won 16% of the vote in the 2010 election.

El 1-S Gitano es una reacción ante un momento especialmente grave

Juan de Dios Ramírez Heredia, presidente de Unión Romaní: "En términos generales la situación es muy grave y alarmante, especialmente en países centroeuropeos, donde el ascenso de la extrema derecha es sofocante. Cuando yo era eurodiputado, dicha corriente era representada por Jean Marie Le Pen, que tenía veinticinco parlamentarios; en estos momentos, en la Eurocámara hay 57 diputados de extrema derecha que constituyen un grupo tan numeroso y con postulados tan claros que no difieren nada de la doctrina nazi. Son parlamentarios que ponen en práctica iniciativas absolutamente racistas en el ámbito de la expulsión de inmigrantes de los países europeos, de la limpieza racial". http://www.publico.es/espana/441619/el-1-s-gitano-es-una-reaccion-ante-un-momento-especialmente-grave í

Il a relevé que "les expulsions collectives sont interdites en droit international, et que les rapatriements doivent être volontaires, en conformité avec le droit international, et basés sur des évaluations individuelles et une surveillance indépendante".
