Via Aljazeera: The Rageh Omaar Report – The Right to Roam:
Unwanted, marginalised, defiant – the Roma people have become the target of governments across Europe.
In France and Italy they have been thrown out in their thousands – accused of illegally overstaying their welcome and blamed for increases in crime.
They say that in their countries of origin they are victims of discrimination – a minority with few opportunities.
They are now taking advantage of European Union laws that allow freedom of travel to all European citizens – looking West to find a better life, yet reluctant to adapt to Western ways.
The Roma issue has now been forced on EU policy makers – they have to find a balance between the growing hostility and the rights of the Roma.
It was revealed last month that Vic Toews, Canada’s Public Safety Minister, approved the raid, carried out for the Canada Border Services Agency’s reality television series.After the revelation, the BC Civil Liberties Association filed a formal complaint with the federal Privacy Commissioner on behalf of the migrant worker who was filmed.
