Litvinov, 28.11.2008 21:35, (ROMEA)

Representatives of the town hall of Litvinov will meet dissatisfied inhabitants of the Janov housing estate on December 8, the two sides agreed today.

Unadaptable inhabitants from other parts of the Czech Republic as well as from Slovakia have been moving of late to the housing estate that is inhabited mainly by Romanies.

Marches of far-right extremists, who claim they protect the non-Romany inhabitants, from the town centre to Janov have resulted in sharp clashes with the police. In the latest of them on November 17, 16 people were injured.

An inhabitant of the Janov housing estate said that "besides noise, we face threats by the unadaptable citizens. The last time the city and national police intervened in our entrance on Wednesday," he said.

The town hall banned on Wednesday and today six marches in the town announced by extremists, other local citizens dissatisfied with the situation at Janov and the Romany Christian Association.

From Friday until next May, the town streets and squares were previously "booked" by the Jewish Liberal Union.
