Panel discussion to mark the International Roma Day, 8 April 2014 at the Palais des Nations – Room VII
Persistent discrimination and exclusion have kept Roma in situations of extreme poverty, poor housing conditions without water and sanitation, but too often with a permanent threat of eviction.
Panelists Valeriu Nicolae, Saimir Mile, Gina Csanyi-Robah and Margarita Ilieva will be discussing the problems of housing and forced evictions of Roma.
At the third year celebration of the International Day in Japan by The International Movement Against All Forms of Discrimination and Racism, Professor KANEKO is giving a talk on Roma people’s struggle and actual situation in Canada. He has translated into Japanese, “Zhivindi Yag , The Living Fire” by Ronald Lee, which was an autobiographic novel on the author, Roma community elder in Eastern Canada; and published through Sairyusha-publishing co. in March 2014.
