Who are we?

Posted on May 5, 2012 at 5:47 0 Comments

This is in response to a young lady among us who is hurting after being told who and what she is (or isn't) and after being sent some hate speech.

There are those in the US who don't believe there are Romanies in the US. There are those around the world who don't believe we can make a choice, make a difference, make a stand.

We are Romanies. We may decide to call ourselves Gypsies, but that is a word that was placed upon us, dictated to us if you will. It is not a word of our…

Dear Ciuin, 


If you "friend" me I think we can more easily talk about the press pack on my page or yours. Or you can email me at


I posted my first draft on the IRADL page, but actually I would like, as you suggested, to pull it all together before we present it as a draft to the group. Or did you want to review it piece by piece?


I think you have much the harder job, the "why," and so I think I should take on another section while you are working on that. I can tackle "who." I think there are two "who's" maybe--the "who" of the Board, which isn't quite together yet, I gather, and the "who" of our culture, positive examples of our people's achievements. Or is my thinking of it awry? I cannot work much on it this week, as I must take a short trip that will occupy me, but I can start again the week after. Are we aiming for early April? I only have a foggy sense of our deadline.


Let me know what will help, and how you want to proceed.

All your suggestions sound fine to me. No, I would not use President Clinton, only those who acknowledge their heritage, like Charlie Chaplin, perhaps. I do have Dr. Hancock's book and will start there and will find out whom Els wants to designate as Board. Then perhaps we can see whom else we need to include.

Democratic Transition will bring greater legitimacy and accountability and a democratic process allowing all to participate and work together for better recognition of the Roma Nation and the defeat of "anti-Gypsy" racism.
