EGAM launched a few years ago the European campaign “Dignity for Lety!” whose aim is to raise awareness about the pig farm in Lety which was erected in 1970s on the very spot of the World War II concentration camp for Roma people. The campaign has largely mobilized civil society, political leaders, human rights defenders and intellectuals who demand the removal of the pig farm and creation of the dignified memorial.
The “Dignity for Lety!” campaign reassembled numerous civil society organizations from the Czech Republic along with the representatives of all major political parties, including the Minister of Justice Robert Pelikan. The strong and clear message of all major Czech political representatives about the removal of the pig farm, which also gets subsides from the European Union, gained the unanimous support and their public commitment to engage within the campaign.
The day also saw the launching of the EGAM led initiative of the European Foundation for the Memory of the Roma Genocide, whose role would be particularly memorialization, education, transmission, the fight against racism and discrimination, for dignity and for social inclusion. EGAM will meticulously continue to follow the process in order to ensure the concrete steps and final erection of the memorial in Lety.
