Authorities return confiscated Czech-Romani flags to artist after acquittal

Prague, 27.1.2015 0:21, (ROMEA) The story of the art project called "Selection Procedure for a Czech-Romani Flag", which was exhibited during the summer of 2013 at the outdoor Artwall Gallery in Prague on the Edvard Beneš embankment of the Vltava River has now ended with both misdemeanor proceedings that were opened against artist Tomáš Rafa ending in acquittal. "I am startled by the fact that discussions have once again erupted that are evidently being incited by ultra-right groups, because they still keep talking about this art project as having endangered the statehood of the Czech Republic or its state symbol. This was an anti-racist project that intended to support the unity of everyone in the Czech Republic," Rafa told news server Romea.cz.  full story

Jud Nirenberg: A New Reason to Put Aside the Old Slander against Romani

Washington/USA, 10.12.2014 9:49, (ROMEA) For decades, there has been an often-repeated fantasy that Roma do not plan for their own futures in the same way as others – that Roma care less about education, about jobs or saving money or spending money they don’t have to care for their homes – because the Romani language lacks a future tense. Having no way to speak about the future means not thinking about future consequences of today’s economic decisions, goes the theory. This idea has always been absurd. Firstly, the idea is based upon the myth that Romani does not have a future tense, whereas all dialects of Romani do have future, present and multiple past tenses. In most dialects, Romani regular verbs form the future tense with a suffix.  full story
