Denbighshire Council has earmarked land on the outskirts of the city for a permanent base for an extended gypsy family, and another piece of land for a transit site for five or six travellers. The Green Gates site, just off the A55, is next to St Asaph Business Park and the business community and hundreds of residents are furious about the proposal, which has spurred a petition. But an open letter to the people of St Asaph has been published on the Travelling Ahead website, quoting some comments on social media, which they say, when applied to any other community would be considered “outright racism and hate speech. Signs against the proposed site are dotted around St Asaph Image: When you make comments about Travellers or Gypsies, stop and think.

Express Comment Why Romania and Bulgaria want us to take their Roma MUCH as I deplore the way in which bankers have kept their fat salaries and bonuses after being bailed out by taxpayers, my jaw dropped at comments by Damian Draghici, an adviser to the Romanian prime minister. It is another example of the propaganda that has been fired off by governments in Romania and Bulgaria in the run-up to the lifting of restrictions on migrants from those countries, something which takes effect at midnight tonight.

Here we are, Romanian and Bulgarian leaders are trying to say, enlightened participants in the EU’s project to promote greater understanding between European peoples, and yet we are being thwarted by nasty, racist Britain. Last week Ion Jinga, the Romanian ambassador to Britain, demanded an end to what he called the “vilification” of his countrymen in Britain.

Earlier in the year he complained about a supposed obsession in Britain with Romanians and crime, bizarrely suggesting that crime in Britain would actually fall if more Romanians came to live here. I don’t dispute that most Romanians wanting to come to Britain, or already here, are law-abiding but the idea that their presence will help to stop the rest of us committing crime is a little bit too much to bear.

Hmong culture[ edit ] Marriage by abduction also occurs in traditional Hmong culture , in which it is known as zij poj niam. Generally, the abductor takes the woman while she is alone. The abductor then sends a message to the kidnap victim’s family, informing them of the abduction and the abductor’s intent to marry their daughter. However, if they fail to find the woman, the kidnap victim is forced to marry the man.

The abductor still has to pay a bride price for the woman, generally an increased amount because of the kidnapping. Because of this increased cost and the general unpleasantness of abduction , kidnapping is usually only a practice reserved for a man with an otherwise blemished chance of securing a bride, because of criminal background, illness or poverty. In , Kong Moua, a Hmong man, kidnapped and raped a woman from a Californian college.

He later claimed that this was an act of zij poj niam and was allowed to plead to false imprisonment only, instead of kidnapping and rape. The judge in this case considered cultural testimony as an explanation of the man’s crime. While the friends carried the woman away, the “groom” would use scissors to cut off the woman’s panties. The woman, struggling to preserve her dignity, would be unable to adequately fight off her abductors. The victim would then be taken to the groom’s house, where the marriage would be consummated.

The bridal lament would be witnessed by members of her family and the local community. In many cases, the women are kidnapped and sold to men in poorer regions of China, or as far abroad as Mongolia.

It was demolished to make way for the Olympic Park. The crisis has led to a reported rise in Gypsies and Travellers setting up unauthorised encampments in car parks and on playing fields, often enraging locals. In turn, local authorities, police and MPs across the country have called for increased eviction powers to move people on when they settle their caravans.

Traveller groups say local authorities have failed to provide enough sites with power supplies and running water for travelling communities to live on, and some are being evicted from the sites that do exist because of overcrowding. The move has been criticised for disenfranchising Gypsies and Travellers who have been living in the same place for a long period of time because of old age, ill health or having children in school.

Dr Simon Ruston, a planning consultant working on behalf of Gypsies and Travellers, said there was evidence that the change had resulted in local authorities lowering their targets for the number of pitches they needed to provide. MacNamara said campaigners had predicted that the change in policy in would lead to a crisis of unauthorised encampments. Over the past year there has been a steady stream of local press reports describing how groups of Travellers have settled on land before being moved along by police.

We will publish a call for evidence shortly, seeking views on the effectiveness of existing powers, and whether reform is needed. If people have done wrong, they can be dealt with using the current laws. They are not just going to suddenly disappear. So the government needs to start addressing this issue of homelessness for these communities now.

Romani life in communist Czechoslovakia included forced assimilation, forced sterilization of women, segregated education This photo is from Kladno, Czechoslovakia, in When Samko objected that the hesitancy to self-identify is because of Romani people’s historical experience and fears associated with the country’s Nazi- era and communist-era past, the President said: From the Holocaust to imprisonment for living on the road Romani people have been living in the Czech lands for at least years, with the first known written mention of them dating to the mid th century.

The discriminatory legislation threatened all who lived itinerantly with imprisonment and that aspect of the law was not removed from the Czech legal code until ; the law itself was not abolished completely until Whoever did not accept this “aid” from the state would be imprisoned.

Marzahn, the first internment camp for Roma Gypsies in the Third Reich. Drawing support from many non-Nazi Germans who harbored social prejudice towards Roma, the Nazis judged Roma to be “racially inferior. Under the Nazi regime, German authorities subjected Roma to arbitrary internment, forced labor, and mass murder. German authorities murdered tens of thousands of Roma in the German-occupied territories of the Soviet Union and Serbia and thousands more in the killing centers at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka.

Both in the so-called Greater German Reich and in the so-called Generalgouvernement, German civilian authorities managed several forced-labor camps in which they incarcerated Roma.

John Hydenius John Hydenius is a journalist living in Sweden. He would love to tell you more about himself. If people found out who he was, though, he would lose all of his Swedish friends and probably end up on a list of enemies of the state. He can’t wait to move abroad. But authorities are unable to do anything to stop them. People are starting to grow tired of the situation, some who might even resort to the use of violence.

These Romani people, coming from Bulgaria and Romania, have been a common sight on the streets of Sweden for the past few years. They make their living mostly from begging for money, which must be a lucrative business, since more of them are coming every year. Coming to Sweden dirt-poor, the gypsies set up camp in places where they have no permission to stay.

Some live in caravans or abandoned buildings, others in tents or makeshift shelters. They throw their trash in the woods, which is also where they defecate. Naturally, Swedes residing around the Gypsy encampments are not terribly happy about the situation. I can tell you that most of the people living around here are hunters. And you know what can happen when people are partying and getting each other riled up.

This mini-series was depicting the real lives of U. It was very interesting to watch but the gender roles they showed were startling, especially since they were based in a developed country. The lives of these gypsy women are run by men; they have no real say in their own existence. When I watched this show I found myself shocked at how the women were being treated and the level of acceptance in the community of this treatment.

The weddings that the gypsy community plan are quite extravagant and usually based off a Disney wedding theme. The outfits that they show the women, throughout the whole show are quite revealing but the sexual restrictions are also quite tough.

France vows to tear down Gypsy camps 28th July , 0 comments France vowed Wednesday to tear down illegal Gypsy camps and expel Gypsies from other EU states who break the law, after President Nicolas Sarkozy said the minority posed security “problems. Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said illegal “camps or squats” housing Gypsies and travellers would be shut down and foreign Gypsies breaking the law would undergo “virtually immediate” deportation to their countries of origins. Sarkozy warned ahead of the meeting that some members of the intinerant minorities pose security “problems”, in response to an attack on a police station in Saint-Aignan, central France last week.

Masked rioters tried to break down the door of the station, damaged other buildings and burned cars during that attack, sparked after police shot dead a Gypsy during a car chase. Sarkozy’s new “war on crime” was also spurred by separate riots, not linked to the Gypsy minority, in a poor suburb of Grenoble, southeastern France. He called the meeting of ministers and police chiefs to review what he dubbed “the situation of travelling people and Roma and the problems that certain members of these communities pose to public order and safety.

The group said it wanted Sarkozy to meet its representatives to begin a dialogue to try to find a solution for the , Gypsies and travelling people in France.
