Mahala,

You may know that some Canadian immigration officials are questioning whether conditions are truly so difficult for Roma who flee Hungary. If you help with the request below from Gina at the Toronto Roma Centre, please do. They need photos, eyewitness accounts, newspaper citations, anything that shows the current conditions.Nais tuke!

The Roma Community Centre in Toronto was contacted by the Canadian federal government...finally! The Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Manager for Refugee Operations is coming to meet with us tomorrow. Many of you may know that Hungary is the top refugee producing country in Canada - for years. However, recently the numbers have jumped and it has sparked a lot of media and government interest. In addition, our ongoing advocacy is building a lot of awareness among Canadians regarding the series human rights issues faced by Hungarian, and other groups of Roma.

For this meeting - I need the best evidence that I can produce regarding the racial violence and endemic discrimination targeting of the Roma community in Hungary by Jobbik, the banned Magyar Guarda, and the Hungarian police. If you have recent pictures, videos, or documents that have been translated into English - please send them to ginacsanyi@gmail.com - as soon as possible.

This help can possibly make a difference in the lives of thousands of Roma families seeking assylum in Canada.

Dear Glenda,

The situation in Hungary is rather serious. For recent information Gina can turn to:

Agnes Daroczi (daroczia@mmikl.hu) or Adele Eisenstein (adele@c3.hu)

Both are on this site.

Els

Thank you, Ela. I will pass on the information to Gina and also contact Agnes and Adele.

Dear Glenda,

as far as I know we had this video of the incident in Gyöngyöspata in our Archiv, may be it was posted by Lukas, but I am not sure!

Viola

Viola, nais tuke. I thought we had that, but when I went looking for our archived notes, I couldn't find them on the reorganized site, and I couldn't remember who had taken the video. Now I know! I can always contact Lukas about it. Thanks again.
Glenda

You are welcome, Glenda - I´m happy, if I could be helpful!

Viola

Glenda,

I don't know if this is helpful but I can provide you with a few links to articles from newspapers here in the UK regarding Roma-persecution:

Also, Amnesty International has a good gathering of info about the attacks on Roma in Hungary: http://www.amnesty.org/en/region/hungary

 

I hope this helps, even if just in a tiny way.

Omar, thank you. I will pass this on to Gina.
