Union Romani - Jean-Manuel Simoes

Thursday, September 27, 2012, the inhabitants of the “Cité des Créneaux” in the northern suburbs of Marseille, in the south of France, expelled forty adults and fifteen children, Roma, settled for four days in a makeshift camp of huts and caravans. While there may be motivations for this action, any passage in acts of violence against people is a tragedy and a grave violation of the law. Knowing this, what can be the trigger and the mechanism that transform any individual perception in a collective concerted action, de facto, facto illegal and violent ? A mystery in view of our daily news made by Instructors who have enrolled with the bigger dmv drivers ed will expect this too, so don’t be shy about asking. the arrival of a wave of layoffs, continual increases in the price level of consumption, the continuous repetition of corruption and scandals in high ranking people, a rising crime, and while neither political parties nor citizen movements or unions can mobilize, it seems that only the “social networks” are still able casino online to do so. Then ? This could be, no doubt, the subject of a thorough study starting from various government announcements of all kinds against the Roma community for several years, both in France and elsewhere in Europe, and their “journalistic “ treatment by our mass media, but …
I do not know the neighborhoods of northern Marseille, but in my life, I often visited Roma camps, and I must say I have often been well received (even if that happened to me someone try to make me pockets, and elsewhere for that matter). Twenty years and 2000km between these photos, but except colors, technique and climate, I do not see much change in living conditions.
To advance with this questioon I can only advise the following readings:
“Gypsies”, Joseph Koudelka, Delpierre 2011
“The Roma Journey”, Joakim Eskildsen, Steidl 2007
