Conserning Strojan Roma story

with 4 comments

Majority of population in Ivanča Gorica were with their barricades and demonstrations very successfull. Nobody believes that they could return to their property in Ambrus. Even Strojan’s gave up the idea. Now they are looking for new place to live even in downtown Ljubljana (Tovarna Rog). Of course they refused those options. Everyday they are looking for new location. Gradmother is very desperate and she’s about to leave Postojna and just go away.

People belives that we’re about to see the end of this story, but I’m affraid this is just introduction. Silvo Mesojedec (organizer of many protests concerning Roma issue in Novo mesto) already announce that they are waiting for things to settle and then they will start with their campaign to resettle Romas in Novo mesto.

d120_2826_borut_peterlin.jpg On the right side of the road land was given to Romas. On the left side of the road Romas build their houses on the land that is property of Ministry of Defence. Majority of buldings are shanties, but few houses are really modern worth definetly more then 100.000 EUR. I hope they will find a common language. Romas are asking that the land should be sold to them, but apperantly Novo mesto’s industrial zone will expand in this area.

  2. Why writing in Slovenian language? So others can’t read how nacist Slovenian population is? So it would be easier to cover the stink from the naci-socialists?

    So you can go back pretending all is ok in Slovenia when in fact it isn’t?

    You know, watching back in time and space Slovenia is an interesting experiment. The majority punishes those more successful and those who are different and don’t fit in.
