Bringing shame upon Slovenia
Road sign just before Zagradec with graphite “Death to Gypsys” on 28.10.2006
Yesterday was an article in Demokracija magazine “Bringing shame upon Slovenia” where dr. Peter Starič is commenting also my photograph. In extremely renown newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung (Monday 27th of November 2006) an article “Slowenien fruchtet um sein Ruf” (Slovenia frightens for its reputation) was published. Article is illustrated with my picture of the mob marching toward Roma settlement.
In magazine Demokracija (which is largely owned by governing SDS party) Peter Starič says that yournalist Martin Woker had bad luck because Mladina and myself is far from being objective reporters. In his article Mr. Starič expresses deep disbelief in my claims that mob was yelling “death to Gypsies” (they’ve also yelled “Gypsies Raus”) and when commenting my picture lightly questions if a person on the right with stick in his hand is real or it might be digitally manipulated?
Well here is a sequence, so pay attention to a person on the right.
And_also_this guy was yelling “Ubi, ubi cigana” which means “Kill, kill Gypsy”.
If you doubt in my journalistic credibility and that my pictures are digitally manipulated, please sue me. Nevertheless the whole situation of accusing journalists and especially Mladina weekly for bringing shame upon the country, resembles so much to old times of Yugoslavia when Mladina was even banned for bringing shame upon Yugoslavia.
Mladina was bringing shame upon Yugoslavia
Mladina is bringing shame upon Slovenia
Mladina will bring shame upon Europa
