(en) Romania, BUCHAREST, Anti racist march

Date Sat, 11 Nov 2006 14:46:18 +0200


About 200 activists marched Friday through the downtown of Romanian capital to
protest discrimination based on race disabilities gender or sexual orientation
Participants - including human rights supporters, media freedom activists
and anarchists - carried banners reading "All different, all equal."
They also commemorated victims of Nazi persecution, with marchers stopping
at a the site of a monument for Holocaust victims.
"Romania needs to take responsibility for the crimes committed 60 years ago
... We don't see this in history books," said Razvan Martin, one of the
organizers.
Romania's wartime pro-Nazi government, led by Marshal Ion Antonescu, was
responsible for the deaths of 280,000-380,000 Jews and more than 11,000
Gypsies, or Roma.

After decades of denial about the country's role in the Holocaust, Romania's
government took responsibility for the crimes in 2004 and pledged to educate
citizens about them.

Demonstrators also read a manifest calling for respect for minorities.

"There is still enormous discrimination and marginalization about Roma and
homosexuals in Romania," Martin said.

Police stopped about 30 people, apparently radical soccer fans, who tried to
halt the march..
