WHEN JUSTICE PROTECTS RACISTS - Call to Action

I am part of a Roma Artists website called Khetanes (means together) and I just received this email. Although you can’t post on the site, support messages to the email at the bottom of the post would be incredibly appreciated. 

You say there is no discrimination against my people? Read this and then tell me again:

Amale,

Tomorrow Roberto Malini and Dario Picciau, two artists and human rights activists, will be in the Italian court of Pesaro. Both are facing possible prison sentences.

Their crime?.. They opposed the human rights violations of Roma in Italy. So, not only Roma are persecuted, but also artists who defend their rights.

Both Roberto and Dario belong to the EveryOne Group, that is on our Khetanes site. All EveryOne Group members are artists. It should be stated here that they designed our logo: the butterfly, with the red Roma wheel and the words “inspiring justice”. This logo is on our site and in all our publications, as a symbol of freedom and fundamental rights for all.

Today we are over 700 artists and scholars, from 48 countries in the entire world. Taking into account the orchestras, bands and theatre companies, we are 2500 at least.

Among the first ones to protest against the persecution of Roberto and Dario, is Juan de Dios Ramírez Heredia, President of the Unión Romaní in Spain and Honorary Member of Khetanes. Other activists, artists and scholars followed his example.

I believe we all must protest. Gandhi stated that human rights are the bread in this world. Without bread our civilization will starve. Please, react to roberto.malini@everyonegroup.com and/or Artists_Initiative@ziggo.nl

Roberto and Dario were released without charge. The judge felt that there was so substance to the charges being made against them! This is such good news. Our support for their plight definitely had an impact on the judge in the case—despite the prosecution only wanting jail time!

I was so happy to receive this good news this morning! Opre!

Dale Farm is being evicted now!

The Guardian website is pretty good for updates if you cant get there. Its pretty shocking to be honest.

:(

They may not be Romani, but this effects ALL of us. They receive the same amount of racism and discrimination as we do.

This is horrible. 

ugh.

This http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-15357932 is just terrible.

I knew it would come to this and it breaks my heart. I know that I’ve posted about issues I have with Dale Farm residents and the way they are portrayed and portray themselves…. but they’re all still called “gypsies”… just like we are. People can’t distinguish between us.

THIS my friends, is what happens all over Europe on a daily basis. I think the fact that these are “white” gypsies has made a difference to the amount of press coverage this has received. The evictions in Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Russia—they are all undocumented.

I am crying. At work. Really. 

I’ve experienced this violence first hand… and it’s why I no longer live in the UK.
