Recently, a Romani woman and her family from Moldova, were granted asylum in the United States, based on the treatment of Roma in Europe.

Part of her argument was that even if deported somewhere else in Europe, she would be the victim of racism, violence and discrimination.

Lolo Diklo was asked to submit an affidavit in this case which we did. It attested to the situation facing Roma/Sinti everywhere in Europe and the likelihood that this woman and her family would most assuredly encounter racism.

In citing the reasons for his decision, the judge in New York stated that his opinion was strongly influenced by the powerful statement of Lolo Diklo.

We're feeling pretty proud.

This is wonderful news! Would you considering posting the statement you sent?

Thanks Marcia. We thought about posting it but we're concerned about a couple of issues.

At first we were leaning towards not even mentioning it, but I couldn't help myself. Ha.
