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.
