Roma refugee families rally in Vancouver

“Roma-Hungarian refugee families from Burnaby, New Westminster and Coquitlam are gathering for a rally today outside of the federal immigration offices on Georgia Street in Vancouver.

“Roma people, Roma families have a big fear to go back to Hungary. Their life is in great danger there,” said Florian Botos, a Burnaby resident who’s helping organize the rally. Botos is expecting 50 or 60 people, mostly Roma refugee families from Hungary.

According to Botos, Roma people in Hungary face widespread discrimination and attacks from neo-Nazis, some of which have resulted in death.”

  1. To the families rallying in Vancouver, you inspire us! We will be marching in protest on November 4, when Canadian Minister of Citizenship and Immigration gets an honorary degree in Toronto, from Haifa University of Israel. Phenjalen, phralalen, amalen, Opre Roma!
