Life inside the Romanian gypsy ghetto
Its strange that you hardly see this in the News,shocking but true,people are living like this .I am very sure if tis was Africa,all News outlets would have carried this.Anyway something needs to be done.This is the home of about 500 gypsy families in Romania.
Roma are groups that migrated across Europe , most of them from countries like Romania, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic and are now the biggest ethnic minority in the European Union.There are an estimated 10 million across Europe and one in five lives in Romania.
Since their arrival in Europe from India some 700 years ago, they have been politically, socially, culturally and economically marginalised by the dominant population, who have consistently shown negative social attitudes towards them.
The vast majority live on the margins of society in abject poverty, which makes them easy targets in troubled times.
