InsideToronto Article: Parkdale’s Roma community gather for candlelight vigil

“Put your hand up if you have been a victim of violence,” asked Gina Csanyi-Robah from the Toronto Roma Community Centre. “Put your hand up if you feel you have been persecuted.”

Hands from across the crowd gathered in front of Parkdale Collegiate Institute went up – hundreds of hands, both children and adults from Toronto’s Roma community.

“Put your hand up if you know someone who has been murdered,” she went on as a translator repeated her questions. “Put your hand up if you feel you need to stay in Canada.”

After each of the questions, people attending the rally and candlelight vigil for the Roma refugees and immigrants raised their hands and shouted about the persecution and discrimination they faced in their countries of origin.
