MARINA ALBIOL. IU – CONFEDERAL GROUP OF THE UNITED LEFT

The MEP remarked that “it is important to take this day to commemorate the genocide of gipsies during the Second World War, but in this case, some have learned from the horrors of the past: the persecution of the travellers continues today within the borders of the European Union. In 2007, Franco Frattini, then Vice-President of the European Commission, said: “What we do is simple: Go into a nomad camp in Rome and ask them: Can you tell me where you live? If they answer that they do not know, catch them and send them to Romania. “And the situation has changed little since 2007, except that the wave of racism and xenophobia has also joined the Social Democracy. The French now prime minister, Manuel Valls, is known for trying to expel a girl of fifteen while he was hiking, and also here in this Parliament, we have also sat at the extreme right who keeps shouting “catch them” .//
