7.1.2014. – Spiegel: Europe failing to protect Roma from discrimination and poverty

More than 10 million Roma live in Europe. Tens of thousands of them are fleeing westwards from poverty and discrimination in the countries of southeastern Europe. But EU member states are failing to help them.

Governments ignored the Roma for a long time. Germany had its integrated Sinti, France had the Manouches and Spain their Kale, but no one showed any interest in them — and no one asked about the Roma in southeastern Europe.
