Dosta! Go beyond prejudices, discover the Roma.
"Dosta", the Romani word chosen for the Council of Europe current campaign for Roma rights, means "enough!"
Roma rights are violated every day in Europe. Roma workers are refused jobs, their children are refused places in schools. Roma communities are often considered as marginal, and are victimof social exclusion.
Roma are European citizens: they form a group of about 10 million people and can be found in almost all Council of Europe member states; in some Central and Eastern European countries, they represent over 5% of the population.
The address below will take you to a good slide show of the Rroma/Sinti of Europe.
Sorry, you'll have to cut and paste the address.
