NEARLY 200 Roma demonstrated in front of the Presidential Palace on Hodžovo Square to protest against their bad social situation and the inaction of the government. The main organiser of the September 21 demonstration, Alojz Hlina, also proposed solutions to Roma problems, the TASR newswire reported.

“Sometimes I feel that in this country problems are treated as if they have never existed,” said Hlina, as quoted by TASR.

“We propose to establish a state-run company which will issue lunch vouchers,” added Hlina. “It will use its profits to finance construction of new – and reconstruction of old – schools in regions where the facilities are in a catastrophic condition.”
