Agreement on the sale to the State of the pig farm located on the site of the concentration camp for Roma people in Lety (Czech Republic): the European Grassroots Antiracist Movement welcomes a historical victory for the dignity of Roma people.
Paris, Monday 7th August 2017,
Thanks to this leadership, Lety has come from an unknown history to a European focal point of mobilization for the civil society and for political leaders.
For Benjamin Abtan, the president of EGAM : “Today marks a historical day for the dignity of Roma people, and a historical victory for the European civil society. Together, activists and political leaders, Roma and non-Roma, Czech and other Europeans, we have turned Lety from a symbol of shame to that of victory and dignity.
A lot more needs to be done to have the dignity of the victims of the Roma genocide and their descendants respected. All over the continent, the cases where history is too little known or respected should be urgently addressed, with an involvement of civil society.
This could be done for example through the creation of a European Foundation for the Memory of the Roma genocide.”
