On April 8, the International Roma Day is being marked. On this occasion, the Roma history and culture will be celebrated. However, this day has not only a cultural, but also a political validity
This day addresses the meaning of international unity which is at the core of the Roma political identity.
Today, the international Roma community is stronger than ever and has proved on many occasions that it is capable of coming together when needed.
Despite being scattered around the globe, there is a common aspiration to be treated as equal members of society, not to be discriminated, to be protected from violence. This, in fact, is the bottom line driving the international Roma community to stand together – the readiness for a struggle for equality is the virtue of Roma.
At this day, we celebrate equality in diversity and emphasize the necessity of moving forward.
Here is to your attention the compilation of most acute questions about Roma in a creative form. This magnificent work does not only bear educational purpose but also invites its audience for a dialogue by looking at the stereotypes from another angle.
