On Friday together with college from Neue Zurucher Zeitung we’ve visited Strojan’s house. Chicken, Gooses and cat are very hungry. When we stepped outfrom the car, chicken run toward us, expecting some food. We didn’t had it, but in the evening I’ve returned with some bread.
In Sostro, suburb of Ljubljana, where possible location for Strojan family is, again great protest start to happen. Man on the picture is Tom Boh, who was starting toset a barricade and he got fined for doing so and held in prison for 12 hours. He’s braging with his fine. Cross in the back is a pole of a hay-barn, that looks like a cross.
On the spot I was surrprised by reaction of the man who’s picture was in the news and he’s standing in the backgound. He was saying pretty hard stuff conserning Romas, like if they’ll move to this area they will ruin this community and that community didn’t deserve that. The thing that really surrprised me is that he was really indignant on racial issues and he was clearly descending from Serbo / Croatian background….
Mayor of Ljubljana Zoran Janković tryed to convincepeople to accept Roma’s temporarily to stay in their local community, but no luck. Nobody from the goverment side didn’t join to support him. Not even small officials. After his speach he went to his car, but on his way he took time (25 min) to discuss with everybody from the crowd to spoke with him / her.
In Sostro people gathered to protest.
