Italian right-wing politician proposes that Roma residing in irregular camps be sent "back home" in trains

This is an intervention by an Italian right-wing politician of Lega Nord. He is commenting on the situation in 5 "nomad" (in Italy, Roma people are also often referred to with this name, even though it is creating many misunderstandings). He is proposing that these people be sent back home in trains. Literally, he is saying "Let's take three trains and send them back home". He is from the Piedmont Regional Council, so he is saying this as a public person.

Obvious example of Anti-Romani hate speech that comes from a person within the government and, therefore, should recieve more attention in terms of its potential effect.Marking 2nd of August as the Rememberance Day of Roma Genocide is a note to remember that mass violence against a particular social group has deep roots in marginalization of this community at the daily basis - it starts from the small steps, such as "they are different, they cannot live like us" and leads to tragic consequences.
