Forced evictions of 100 Roma people in Romania

100 people from which 50 were children were evicted from a neighbourhood in Eforie Sud, a city from south east Romania. The mayor wanted to "clean" the area as he wants to build some new buildings. People there were left to sleep under the sky in horrible conditions. Some of them were hosted in an abandoned school that has a ceiling that is about to fall. The mayor did not consult the people, try to see alternative solutions for housing. The people were seen as a problem to the city and they did all they could to solve it by force. People were compared to "dogs that stay near a meat shop". More info in English and ways to act: http://www.amnesty.ca/get-involved/take-action-now/romania-families-homeless-after-forced-eviction
