Caffe pub in Prilep discriminated against Roma on an ethnic basis

The Helsinki Committee in the March report on the human rights situation reported that the Commission for Protection against Discrimination established direct discrimination in access to goods and services for two persons of Roma ethnicity from Art Cafe Aporea from Prilep based on skin color and ethnicity .

Testing a situation is a method used in cases of discrimination in which facts and evidence are missing and which is difficult to prove.

In order to determine this discriminatory practice, a situation was tested in Art Cafe Aporea Prilep, through which the access and quality of service in the cafe bar of Roma were tested, by setting up comparators - control testers - that is, non-Roma people.

Namely, when the testers arrived in front of the cafe bar and, according to the test script, they tried to get into the building and order a drink, before the door of the coffee bar they were welcomed by a waiter who did not let them enter with an explanation that there was no place. On the question of the testers why they can not enter the cafe bar and the indication that there are free tables on the cafe bar terrace, the waiter told them that all the tables were reserved and repeated to them that they could not enter.

On the other hand, control testers, persons of Macedonian ethnicity, said that they had access to the cafe bar, that is, at the entrance of the cafe bar they were welcomed by a waiter who asked them where they wanted to sit down, accompanied them to the desired table and immediately after the order was brought their order.

Control testers said the waiter behaved kindly and culturally.
This restriction on the access of persons of Roma ethnicity by Art Cafe Aporea Prilep based on their ethnicity and skin color is a direct discrimination in access to goods and services.

Recommendation: The Helsinki Committee welcomes this opinion of the Commission for Protection against Discrimination, adopted in the legally prescribed time frame, based on the conducted testing of the situation as a method of proving discrimination. We appeal to Art Cafe Aporea Prilep in the future to provide uninterrupted and equal access and quality of service to persons of Roma ethnicity. In addition, we invite all citizens who feel discriminated on any grounds, to report the same to the Helsinki Committee.


Proud to be a Gypsy Traveller, says Chester student

“I’ve been spat on in Chester, I’ve been shouted at, I’ve been chased by men calling me a dirty pikey,” says University of Chester student Lois who is proud to call herself a Gypsy.

Lois, who only wishes to be identified by her first name for that reason, is a British Romani woman which refers to a traditionally itinerant ethnic group which originated in India 1,000 years ago.

The 21-year-old bravely approached CheshireLive to give voice to the Gypsy and Traveller viewpoint because it is so rarely heard.

Lois, who was wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the slogan ‘Proud Gypsy Traveller’, explained: “The reason I wanted to reach out is because a lot of the time, especially when I’m wearing this t-shirt, I’m very visible and I end up educating people in a variety of spaces.

“So I’ve been on the train and there’s been people who have been very curious and have held a lot of prejudices about the Traveller and Romani community.

“And just within having that conversation they have ended up, when I get off, saying ‘Thank you for talking to me’.


The League of Salvini in Lazio, between Roma and Casapound clans

But how? Do they incite the "populace" of the Roman suburbs, even suggesting that they drive out immigrants, Roma, gypsies and then do business together?

Do they even use the Roma mafia clans in the province of Latina for electoral campaigns, and then wink at CasaPound and Forza Nuova which, as Rome mayor Virginia Raggi put it, foster racial hatred?

This story of Matteo Salvini exterminating criminals, gypsies and immigrants cries out justice. Because in order to get votes where he had seen them only with the telescope he embarked the unpresentable. Also in Rome, the capital. And this is the sign of the times.
Offends the attitude of the League against Rome, which was thieving.

At the latest policies of a year ago, the Lega nel Lazio took 11.84% in the first Circumscription, 16.52% in the second. Overcoming Forza Italia (but not the Five Stars and the Democratic Party).


Czech Republic: Several Romani minors hospitalized after adults attack them, shouting racist abuse

In Lipník nad Bečvou, Czech Republic a brutal assault was committed against three Romani children by an adult man and woman. The man is said to have punched the children in the chest and face, and eyewitnesses say he even kicked one child in the chest.

A 14-year-old boy has been hospitalized with a bruised back and a concussion, while a girl has been hospitalized with an injured thoracic cavity and another 12-year-old girl has been hospitalized with a bruised spine and dislocated nose. The children's parents reported the attack yesterday to police.

News server is waiting for the Police of the Czech Republic to respond to our requests for comment. The man and woman are said to have assaulted the children yesterday evening when they were playing in the park of the local chateau.

There were roughly five other minors at the scene, most of whom managed to escape before being attacked themselves.

According to eyewitnesses, the man is said to have grabbed one of the girls by her hair and shouted "You black whore!" at her.

Klára Bartošová, a relative of the assaulted boy, told news server that the man had attacked the children because, several days ago, his 16-year-old daughter had an argument with a Romani child. "Those were absolutely different children, though. He just came up and began beating any Romani child he could get his hands on," she said.
