The Eviction – Roma Exclusion in RomaniaVeröffentlicht: 4. Januar 2014
On 27 September 2013, after having received a ten days notice from the mayor, a Roma community was bulldozed, without any resistance from non-Roma civil society groups, political parties or inhabitants. As if it was just daily routine.
About 100 people, half of them children, were left homeless in the pouring rain. The majority had been living there for decades.
After three days, some families were allowed to seek shelter in a dilapidated building without facilities. Others stayed on the ruins in makeshift huts just because they had no place to go.
After two weeks these huts were bulldozed as well.
