Muižnieks: France must keep its promises concerning equality

The Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Nils #Muižnieks visited #France last week. He met in Paris with a group of human rights organisations, including the ERRC, to discuss the major issues #Roma face in France, including expulsions, evictions, racism and hate speech, access to education, and access to healthcare. The Commissioner also visited a #Romani settlement in Marseille. Muižnieks’ office issued a statement yesterday reflecting the Commissioner’s impressions and concerns. The statement mentioned the situation of EU-citizen Roma and quoted Commissioner Muižnieks as saying “an end needs to be brought to forced evictions from shanty towns, where these measures are taken without any lasting housing solution being provided, as this approach merely relocates and amplifies the problem.”

The Commissioner will shortly be publishing a report on his visit to France

The full text of the statement is available here: http://www.coe.int/en/web/commissioner/-/france-must-keep-its-promises-concerning-equality

European Manifesto for Roma Pride

Roma Pride is a European mobilisation that takes place simultaneously in more than 14 countries on October 5 every year to denounce racism and racial discrimination faced by #Roma across the continent, and to celebrate Romani culture. Roma Pride is a call for dignity and for equal rights for all individuals.

On the eve of Roma Pride, Roma and non-Roma NGOs from 30 countries, including the ERRC, issued a “European Manifesto for Roma Pride”. http://www.errc.org/cms/upload/file/roma-pride-european-manifesto.pdf
