March against Roma Holocaust denial and for removing vice-chair of Czech lower house THIS THURSDAY IN BRNO
On Thursday, 15 February there will be a march against denial of the Romani Holocaust and in favor of honoring the memories of its victims. "It is absolutely unacceptable to us that representatives of the SPD party of Tomio Okamura are denying the Holocaust of the Roma. Their statements are not just brutally harsh toward the victims and their families, but are also inappropriate behavior by the representatives of the state," the organizers of the march have posted to social networks.
"As Romani people and as human beings we are grateful to feel such big support from others. Freedom and democracy cost effort. We want to demonstrate to all, including our children, that these matters are worth fighting for and that it is correct to stand proudly against lies and defamation," the organizers posted.
Those attending the march want to express their disagreement with the denial of the suffering of the Roma during the Second World War and want to publicly support the dismissal of Tomio Okamura from his position as vice-chair of the Chamber of Deputies. The organizers want the march to be peaceful and are asking all participants to bring candles instead of banners.
The march will begin at 16:30 on Moravské náměstí in Brno and will proceed toward náměstí 28. října and the memorial to Holocaust victims there. News server Romea.cz will broadcast the event live online.
