Demand Dignity

Forced evictions, from Italy through Greece to Serbia to Romania. Who could the victims be? You guessed it: the Roma. Amnesty International does an OK job about calling attention to this. I'm sure this is useful--but, to my taste, there is a little too much talk of housing and rights, and too little of the colonial roots of racism and the ways in which the project of "European construction" is implicated in the perpetuation of the latter. But, I guess, that's just how NGO politics works.
