A preliminary agreement on trans-border cooperation of Roma in protests against extremism is one of the conclusions of an international Roma conference held in the Czech town of Melnik on August 8, TASR wrote. The conference was attended by a delegation representing Roma associations from Slovakia.
According to Ivan Veselý, head of the Czech Roma association called Dženo, Czech Roma could attend demonstrations in Slovakia and Hungary.
“We could go to, say, Bratislava, some 50 or 100 of us, depending on the need. We would express support to Slovak Roma by our presence at the demonstrations,” said Veselý. He added that an agreement on common action against extremism is expected to include provisions on both physical and moral backing. TASR
