Seven members of Strojan family have return to Ambrus!

with 4 comments

Seven members of Strojan family have moved back to their house in Ambrus. Grandmother Elka with two boys of age 20, two daughters and two grandchildren moved back to Ambrus. Basically Strojan family judged that the whole family can not move from Postojna without being noticed, so they’ve decided that Mirko and Miha will stay in Postojna, while Gradnmother Elka Strojan drove by one car with two boys, two women and two children. They came to Ambrus around 3pm, unnoticed and when they came they notified a police force.

People were constatly observing the Roma house with their torches and when they’ve noticed some Roma they start to whistle and yell furiously.

On the scene there were about 300 people, from which there were a lot of teenagers who were spending their Friday night out and came to see what is going on.

Skinheads arrived at 11pm. _mg_7051_borut_peterlin.jpg _mg_7067_borut_peterlin.jpg

_mg_7071_borut_peterlin.jpg Two women stepped in front of them and decided they are going to keep them under control. On the end there was no problem with skinheads.

_mg_7010_borut_peterlin.jpg A bottle was thrown toward the Roma house and it hit windshield of a police car. Second object hit a Roma trailer and few coins flew in the direction of the house. Police started to search for perpetrator and the crowd immediatly stopped throwing stones. Luckily these guys are mostly farmers who obbey law, so there was appeals from the crowd that perpetrator should step forward if he is so brave!

  2. V slovenščini je bilo že vse napisano in to mnogo bolje, kot sem sam zmožen, zatorej gre tu predvsem za tuje bralce, ki jim po svojih močeh poskušam pomagati dojeti kaj se dogaja. Poleg tega je fotografija moj jezik izražanja.

    Sicer pa je zadnji post v slovenščini 🙂

  3. Zolja, maybe Borut wants international audience and doesn’t want to hide what is going on in Slovenia from the rest of the world?

  4. Bravo, Borut,
    tudi meni angleščina žal ni preveč domača… kljub temu se poskušam dokopati do resnice. Hvala za fotografije, ki povedo več od besed. Sploh v teh dneh pred Božičem, ko bodo ljudje, ki so si obrili glave od znotraj ob spremljavi orgel peli: “… in na zemlji mir ljudem”… Božič pa se jim bo dogajal daleč od cerkva.
    Prvič v življenju daleč od domovine “čutim” sLOVEnijo čisto drugače kot doslej.
