Roma organization demands action following anti-Gypsy threats in Southwestern city | Politics.hu

The National Roma Self-Government (ORO) firmly condemns the recent racist provocations in the city of Nagykanizsa and expects authorities to take resolute action for finding the perpetrators, ORO said in a statement on Thursday.

ORO issued the statement after a local store had been found with the name Hitler and an arrow cross sign spray-painted on its wall, together with the sentences saying that “You Gypsies will perish” and “You marked with an X will go up in flames!” by Tuesday morning.

Police found in the southwestern Hungarian city twelve recently refurbished houses nearby carrying the X mark.

ORO said it “deeply condemns all politically motivated extremist acts and racist manifestations” and expressed hope that the authorities would find the perpetrators and, if need be, ensure protection to the local Roma community.
