At the end of September we met with Vasile Ionescu, Roma rights activist and leader. We talked about current issues in the Romanian society such as the vision of some NGO’s on how they perceive the Roma issues and about the beginnings of the Roma movement in Romania, of which he was one of the initiators.
Memorable for the guests were the names of two articles, published by Ionescu in March 1990, in the Libertatea newspaper: “Who is afraid of Gypsies? (Cui i-e frica de tigani?)” and “What is your problem with us? (Ce-aveti cu noi, manca-v-as gura?)”
