"Enough is Enough", demonstrations to take place 3 May 2009
We condemn in the strongest possible terms the flagrant and cowardly act to which a Romani family in Vítkov has fallen victim. As a result of an arson attack, three people were severely burned. A two-year-old child who suffered burns over 80 % of her body is fighting for her life.
The Roma in the Czech Republic are embittered by this arson attack and want to show their solidarity with the family. We are preparing a public collection for them and protest gatherings that will take the form of a "chain" demonstration.
Symbolism: Protest gatherings will take place simultaneously at the same time of day nationwide. We call on everyone who condemns the terrorist attack on this Roma family to participate in these demonstrations on Sunday, 3 May 2009 at 16:00.
Towns and locations of the demonstrations
- Prague - Karlínské náměstí
- Litvínov - Náměstí míru

During these demonstrations people will be able to sign a petition condemning rising neo-Nazism in the Czech Republic. A charity collection will also be part of this event. Roma organizations will dedicate the proceeds to the afflicted family so they can secure new housing and mainly so they can afford future medical care.
We thank all the organizations and people who have been moved by this horrifying crime and are expressing their solidarity toward the afflicted family and Roma organizations.
