Roma expelled from Denmark
Denmark, 15.7.2010 23:11, (ROMA VIRTUAL NETWORK )
It's hard to sell a news without live pictures nowadays. Therefore newspaper Ekstra bladet presented its web users with a small video clip of a refrigerator with food leftovers inside. This not so exciting panning over shelves was attached to the story of the 23 Roma who were deported from Denmark with a two-year entry ban. Their only crime was to camp in a place where they could not camp. What sprang to the eye was the headline in the newspaper: 'Look how disgusting Gypsies are living in Amager”.
It can be fine for Extra Badet to provoke. That is probably what this newspaper is for. But it is not good to do it at the expense of Europe's most persecuted people – who are from Hungary to Italy beaten, excluded and deported. The myth of the dirty and criminal Gypsy has had terrible consequences in the history of Europe. Even Ekstra Bladet should be aware of this.

A French appeals court has upheld the EUR 5 000 fine levied against the former chair of the French ultra-nationalist party Front National (FN), Jean-Marie Le Pen, for saying Romani people are "like birds, [who] fly/steal naturally" a remark that in French played on the fact that the word voler means both "to fly" and "to steal". Agence France-Presse reports that Le Pen previously said his right to freedom of expression had been violated by the fine.

On Wednesday 22 October an international conference was held in Prague's Lichtenstein Palace that was interesting both in terms of its focus and in terms of who participated. Organizers wanted to foster an exchange of information about various models of housing for people experiencing social problems and compare them with the options now available in the Czech Republic, especially since the country is on the brink of designing its Social Housing Act.
