Roma Still Being Persecuted In Bulgaria

-
The Place France Deported Them To...

The facts behind their exclusion from Bulgarian society are indisputable. The government in Bulgaria has relentlessly pursued a nationalistic stance in which the minority has no rights whatsoever. They can't even represent themselves in the so called democracy's Parliament.
-
"As a result, ¾ of them still live in segregated quarters, 20% of them are illiterate, and 70% - jobless, the latest data reveal. The Roma in Bulgaria are about 700 000 people, or 10% of the total population. This makes Bulgaria the European country with the highest percentage of Roma, and thus - with the most urgent need for their integration." - PressTV.com

These figures should speak for themselves. However Europe seems to think otherwise. They have for decades now been silent for the most part on Bulgria's disgusting behavior. When France deported the Roma to this Hell hole Europe barely could muster a slap on the wrist for France's racist agenda. And thus other countries followed France's example.
-
Conditions in Romania aren't much better... the other country France deported its Roma to. The Romanian government has pursued a legal action that would change the name of the Roma community to a racist slur. It only dropped this legal move so as to save face when Europeans raised an eyebrow. Romania still however does exclude Roma from Romanian government and society at large.
-
Italy, Sweden, Germany, and France have managed to do the same. Norway has a history of forcing Roma to be sterilized when their number of children passes government approved numbers (to be fair, Norway hasn't done this for some time now). And England has a long established history of chasing Roma families out of any town they just happen to stop in.
-
So the question remains, will Hungary... a country with a wretched history of discrimination against Roma... be able to actually make any progress in "Roma inclusion" across Europe?
-
And for that we will have to wait and see.
