The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) published its fifth report on #Bulgaria today. The report, which cites the work of the ERRC, underlines that #Roma are among the main targets of racist hate speech in the country. According to the report, “the last election campaign was marked by strong #anti-Gypsyism”. The report also points out the challenges that Romani individuals and communities face in access to education, employment and housing.

The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) today published its fifth report on #Slovakia. The report, which cites the work of the ERRC among others, underlines that, “ There is a failure to implement the #Roma integration programme due to a lack of will and because the various programmes remain under the responsibility of individual ministries. An assessment of the progress of the Roma integration programme is impaired by the absence of comprehensive data. Poor housing and segregation in school are the most palpable evidence of the widespread inequalities encountered by Roma.”

EVICTION - Bucharest, today.

About 27 Roma families are being evacuated from a building in Bucharest's famous city center. Following a lawsuit, this building was claimed by a firm called New Bridge Partners, who, by law, should find new homes for these people. Instead, they asked the Jandarmeria (or riot police, if you will) to just forcefully throw these almost 100 people onto the street.

Mare evacuare in Vulturilor 50 - cat costa statul desfasurarea asta de forte? 1. Oamenii sunt evacuati de catre proprietar - mai degraba o firma, New Bridge Partners care a cumparat drepturile litigioase. 2. Aveau multi dintre ei contracte cu Icral/Afi. Chirie mica, pe care oamenii si-o puteau permite. 3. Oamenii nu contesta retrocedarea 4. Cei ce locuiesc aici au cereri de locuinta sociala la primarii de ani de zile. 5. Legea spune ca nu poti evacua fara sa asiguri adapost oamenilor. 6. Fenomenul ia amploare: aici stateau si oameni veniti dupa demolarile de pe Buzesti/Berzei. La prieteni sau deveniti prieteni la nevoie. Sau din solidaritate. Probabil ca ei erau ilegali. Dar asta e important? Asa iubim legea ca nu vedem marginalizare/saracie, responsabilitatea autoritatilor si ne pierdem umanitatea?http://www.criticatac.ro/26296/evacuaii-au-drept-de-vot/
