Protest against raids on Roma

Issue No. 2363

Roma people and their supporters are preparing for a protest to defend Roma from raids and harassment.

Police raided a group of around 70 Roma, including children, in London’s Marble Arch last week. 

Some agreed to return to Romania. Others were given 30 days to leave Britain.

A Roma camp in Hendon was destroyed last month.

The protest will take place from 6.30pm, Friday 2 August at the French Embassy, 58 Knightsbridge Rd, SW1X 7JT. It will then march to Marble Arch. For more information contact Grattan Puxon at [email protected]
