Roma rights conference

From Marc Willers in Budapest: I attended a conference today in the Roma district in a very sunny Budapest. The speakers came from all over Europe and gave accounts of the fantastic work their NGOs are doing to empower Roma women, in order to help them tackle the multi layered discrimination they face and more particularly to help them to access essential services such as healthcare provision for their families and education for their children. The conference was treated to a fantastic show by a community Roma choir and everyone appeared to leave the event with a positive vibe. I’m moving on to a bigger event this evening hosted by the Hungarian government. I have a feeling it’s going to have a slightly different effect!
