17.7.2014, NIAR – More than 1000 Roma in Varna will stay without roof over the head

Roma settlement in Varna, Bulgaria, with approx. 200 houses, should be demolished according to the order of local authorities, but on that occasion haven’t been provided any alternative accommodation to Roma.

“Without houses and permanent residence we won’t be able to send children to school, to find employment and to survive,” says one of residents of this settlement who didn’t want to introduce himself. “Around 1000 people could only burn themselves in front of the municipality building or to bribe the mayor, but we don’t have money”.

They are seriously charging current Varna mayor that he cheated on them because in pre-elections campaign he was promising that he will permanently solve their housing issue and now he leaves them outdoors.
