ROMEA: Politicians, break your silence!

Prague, 23.10.2008 10:20, (ROMEA) We are deeply distressed by the silence following the demonstration on Saturday by members of Národní odpor ("National Resistance") and the Dělnická strana ("Workers' Party") in Litvínov. From the very beginning, the unannounced gathering targeted the Romani minority living at the Janov housing estate. The concerns of those living there were completely justified. They had already experienced one provocation by members of the extremist DS on 4 October 2008, when the party's "Protection Corps" walked through the streets of Janov. In the media we saw clips of Roma holding baseball bats, which naturally prompted mixed feelings from the public. However, the Roma had received no assurances either from politicians or police that their safety would be protected, so it was unfortunately completely logical that they decided to take care of their own safety and that of their families.  full story

There is, therefore, no reason why you, the Roma, should not have them as well. The state evidently is losing the ability and will to protect you against pogroms. You should therefore defend yourselves. Everyone has the right to self-defense.  full story
