Reader feedback: Roma removal a disturbing matter

I find this article most disturbing ["Letanovce Roma losing ground", by Dewey Smolka, March 11-17, 2002, Vol.8, No.9]

How can a government allow local authorities to force 700 people to move, unless it is first established where they are supposed to move to (aside from the fact that it would still be forced removal)? If they were illegal immigrants who just arrived, than yes, of course, they should be repatriated.

What I read is, in my eyes, most disgraceful.
