Do you remember the police-brutality case in Košice, Slovakia, where police officers forced six Romani boys into violent, abusive and inappropriate behavior against each other, including loosing dogs on the boys?
Well, it’s been a decade since this crime occurred and there is still no justice for these Romani boys – victims of the cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment at the hands of the police officers.
Given the gravity of this injustice, participants in the first Roma Leadership Academy “Nicolae Gheorghe” have formed an informal coalition and sent letters of concern to the Slovak embassies in their countries.
Our coalition includes Roma from North Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine, demanding justice for their Romani brothers in Slovakia.
Let them know that an attack on any of us – an attack on any human being – is an attack on all of us!
Stand up for justice! #Romalivesmatter!
