Short info: The truth about the name - ROMA PEOPLE

The first appointment of Roma by non-Romans was reported about 1100 years ago, called Atsincana, based on the Greek word Athigganien, meaning "Untouchable" which was transformed into Atsinganein, to finally get the form of the word - CIGAN. (GYPSY)

Then this appointment slowly loses the trail o is replaced with the form of the word "Gypsy" with the belief that Roma come to Europe from Egypt - Egyptians (E) gyptians - Gypsies, Females, In Britain terminology is formulated as Gypsy in France Gitan, in Spain - Gitanos et al

Today, everywhere in the world, the terminology Rom is used. This is a word from the Romani vocabulary - which has been named among the Roma and has been noted since the Middle Ages in the Byzantine countries.

Accordingly, the language is also named Romani.

Antonio Banderas, one of the most celebrated Spanish Roma!

After the American film star of Roma origin, Charlie Chaplin and Jul Brenner, Antonio Banderas is the most famous film Roma.

Otherwise, Jul Brinner was also active in the fight for Roma rights and participant in the activities of the International Roma Union - IRU in the 1970s. Now, Antonio Banderas has started with his more open support in the past few decades for the Roma community.
Banderas was born in Spain, Malaga on August 10, 1960.

In his hometown, with the support of his fellow citizens, he directed his activities towards the poor Roma community from the suburbs of Malaga and has his own restaurant.

In order to symbolize Benghazi's Roma origin, he has set up a bike in his restaurant at the entrance, which characterizes the two beliefs of the Roma that it brings happiness. At the same time, traditional Romani cuisine is served on the menu.
Otherwise, this is another fact that there are many well-known and prominent figures in the world who do not hide their origin, but at the same time there are many who, due to prejudices towards the Roma people, still hide their Roma identity.

Organizer of 8 July protest by Romani people in Brussels is corrected by incoming MEP - "I've never spoken with him"

Štefan Pongo, a truck driver who dedicates his free time to civic activism and is currently establishing an organization called the Czechoslovak Romani Union, was a guest on ROMEA TV's "Interview" program, moderated by Patrik Banga. The Czechoslovak Romani Union is meant to be active in both the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

The Charter of the Romani People, which the association has issued, draws attention to the need for more Romani representation in public office. The interview with Banga, in Czech, was first broadcast on 28 June.

On 29 June, incoming MEP Peter Pollák, who is a Romani community member from Slovakia, contacted news server Romea.cz and ROMEA TV to respond to Pongo's allegation that the two men had spoken on the telephone and have been preparing to do a live broadcast together. Pollák said that claim is not true.

"I have never spoken with Mr Pongo, neither by telephone nor in person. We have not ever planned any live broadcasts together. He could not even have spoken with an assistant of mine, because I currently do not have an assistant and I will not assume the mandate of Member of the European Parliament until 2 July 2019.

I am planning to meet with MEP Tomáš Zdechovský. I'm sorry to say that the organizer of this protest, Štefan Pongo, whom I do not know, is disseminating fabricated allegations about my person," Pollák said in a statement sent to news server Romea.cz.
