do not let them take away the rights of people who descend from one of the oldest travelling cultures in the world. and there should always be a place, in a free society, for people to enjoy the freedom to choose to be a traveller.

#86 Gypsy Travellers - Respect everyone and speak up for their rights

2011-03-08 12:06

First they came…" is a famous statement attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power and the purging of their chosen targets, group after group. The text of the quotation is usually presented roughly as follows:

First They came... - Pastor Martin Niemoller
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

#90 I love my Gypsy friends

2011-03-09 04:33

This is not just a clique, but my best friend is a Gypsy. I've attended their family reunion and has never felt so welcome. Wi th me being black and from the south, I have deep feeling toward prejudice and hatred against all people. Anything I can do to stop this on Facebook, I will be more than happy to do.

#91 Roma, Gypsy/ Travellers.

2011-03-09 12:43

All forms of race hate are to be abhorred. Gypsy/ Travellers and Roma communities are particularly easy targets. This kind of vile rant should not be allowed on Facebook and should be taken exactly for what it is. 'Incitement to Racial Hatred'.

#91: Mary Hendry - Roma, Gypsy/ Travellers.

Agreed, Mary. As you will know, the Council of Europe Advisory Committee  of the FRAMEWORK CONVENTION FOR THE PROTECTION OF NATIONAL MINORITIES is visiting the UK at the moment. During their visit to Edinburgh yesterday they were presented with this petition, the signatures to date, media articles and a transcript of the race hate comments made on Facebook.


Thanks to all who have signed the petition, please continue to share with family and friends. The petition will remain open for signing until the end of March.

#98 Facebook-No Place for Gypsy/Roma/Traveller Hate Pages

2011-03-11 05:12

86 Traveller families at Dale Farm, Billericay, Essex are facing eviction from the land they own, have no identified authorised land to move to and are additionally stressed by the continuous stream of hostility on these pages. Some of the messages constitute incitements to violence against Travellers who already experience discrimination and marginalisation. Facebook needs to act responsibly, freedom of expression does not include the right to demonise an entire ethnic group and suggest ways of eliminating them.
