    Sam Brackenbury, my friend, as a Gypsy, (Romano) I see, hear, witness and is subject to many things, it’s so bad, I rarely leave the house, I am a prisoner behind 4 walls that don’t want me. In the future, we may indeed find ourselves being led to those very same showers you speak of, God knows the hate is enough to trigger another genocide!

    Acana mucav tut le devlesa!

  24. Nigel Smith says:

    Travellers facing eviction from a United Kingdom settlement, dubbed ‘Europe’s largest illegal gypsy site,’ will meet with Council of Europe officials next month.

    A three person delegation from the advisory committee of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM), will visit the Dale Farm site in Crays Hill during a visit to the country between 6 and 11 March.

    “We are collecting facts and the views of people,” said a FCNM spokeswoman. “Dale Farm has been the centre of disputes for quite some time. We are monitoring the implementation of the framework convention. The views of the committee will be made known to the authorities in June.”

    It is understood that some 86 families live on the site without planning permission. Basildon Borough Council is expected to vote next month on the future of the settlement.

    The United Kingdom is a signatory to the FCNM and its compliance with the convention was last monitored in 2007.

    Next month, the delegation will visit London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast during the five day visit and report its findings to government authorities.
