For over a year now, the threat of forced eviction has hung over 74 Roma families in the Athenian suburb of Halandri. There were hopes that SYRIZA’s victory in the Greek elections and its promises to put human rights first, might signal a break with the past, an end to forced evictions of Romani communities, and the start of a politics of inclusion for Roma. On this evidence they may be false hopes.

A Roma Community Takes Action against Czech School Discrimination

Facing discrimination in the Czech Republic's education system, the Roma community in the city of Ostrava is fighting to secure better schooling for its children, one child at a time.

European Roma Rights Centre - Fri, 05/01/2015 - 11:08am
"What's the use of human rights treaties if our communities suffer massive discrimination every day?"; "Why do governments continue to violate human rights with impunity?"; "How can we all fight to overcome racism and rejection of Roma and Sinti communities?" These are some of the questions that Roma and Sinti activists discussed with us in Rome during the training course jointly organised by the Associazione 21 Luglio, Amnesty International, and the ERRC. From the 25 April to the 3 May, ten young Roma leaders are going to enrich their understanding of how human rights applies to the situations Roma face. The training course is focusing on human rights principles and standards, legal protection mechanisms, anti-discrimination law, campaigning and advocacy, gender, combating evictions, and other issues. Perhaps most importantly, this week will foster the development of a network of Roma and Sinti activists in Italy aimed at protecting the respect of the rights of Roma and increasing the level of action by Roma on behalf of their communities.

Another step forward: The European Commission launched another infringement procedure for breaching the EU anti-discrimination law. After the Czech Republic, Slovakia is the second Member State, which the EC sent a formal notice to due to discrimination of Roma children in education.

It is time to stop discrimination!

Big like for the European Commission!

The decision to initiate #infringement proceedings is a warning to the Slovak government and at the same time it is a message to all Member States that #discrimination will not be tolerated.
