PETITION TO SAVE THE CHILDREN IN THE TOXIC CAMPS IN KOSOVO
Friday, July 23, 2010 4:51 AM
FROM UNITED KINGDOM ASSOCIATION OF GYPSY WOMEN
Dear Friends & Colleagues,
For eleven years Paul Polansky, and in latter years myself and others have been trying to get the UN to evacuate the Roma camps in Kosovo where the children have the highest lead levels in medical literature. More than 89 Roma/Ashkali have died in the camps. Every child born there has irreversible brain damage, if they survive.
Since the UN doesnt want to listen to our pleas on behalf of these children, we are starting a world-wide petition to President Obama asking him to evacuate the camps (less than 600 men, women and children) and medically treat them at the American military base in Kosovo. This is the web site link to join us in signing the petition
