UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is deeply concerned about the anti-Roma demonstrations in Bulgaria since the 23 of September, when a Roma leader, called Kiril Rashkow was blamed of killing a 19 years old boy. Rupert Colville, the spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, has issued a statement in which he show concern about an entire community to be targeted for an offence allegedly committed by an individual. It is not the first time that there are problems with Roma community in UE. These kinds of situations, despite being rejected for the European Union institutions, are becoming more usual. For example, about one year ago, French government expelled the Romanian gypsy’s community of France. You can read the hole statement below:
4 October 2011
Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights: Rupert Colville
We are deeply concerned about the anti-Roma demonstrations that have been occurring in Bulgaria since 23 September, when an ethnic Bulgarian youth was run over and killed by a van reportedly belonging to a local Roma. The protests continued into this past weekend, spreading to some 14 towns across the country. We regret the death of the young man in the village of Katunitsa. We hope that if the driver of the van is culpable, he will be brought to justice in
accordance with the law, and that through such a judicial process, the facts surrounding the young man’s death will be clearly established. The hate speech that has been fuelling the anti-Roma protests in Bulgaria is of great concern. It is unacceptable for an entire community to be targeted for an offence allegedly committed by an individual. We call on Bulgarian authorities at the highest political level to publicly restate this principle of individual criminal responsibility. The political leadership must take a strong stance against hate speech and ensure that police officers continue to be deployed in sufficient numbers to protect Roma neighbourhoods from threats of retribution and harassment. Recently, anti-Roma demonstrations have also taken place in Hungary and the Czech Republic. In all three countries, political parties with extreme nationalist views have reportedly seized the opportunity to stoke up anti-Roma prejudice. In such an atmosphere, inter-ethnic tensions rise, and Roma risk becoming scapegoats of broader dissatisfaction. Such hostility adds to the challenges which millions of Roma in Europe face in realisation of their economic, social and cultural rights, including education, health and, particularly, employment. We encourage the EU and European States to adopt and implement socially inclusive policies to end the long-standing discrimination against Roma communities in Europe.

Interview with a political science student from the American Univesity in Bulgaria (Blagoevgrad)
Victor is 19 years old and he has just started to study political science. He is optimistic about the entry of Bulgaria in the EU. He maintains that the European grants are properly invested. “Adopt the Euro will be good because it would improve the situation of Bulgaria. It will allow easier trades and travel to other European countries without change money.” he declared. However he is aware that the Euro would raise the prices, but he think it will not a problem if the salaries also rise.
Victor says that: “The crisis haven’t really hit Bulgaria, as much that is has hit wealthier countries in the West. Because there are so many investments here”
He says that the Bulgarian government is corrupt as the rest of governments around the world. But he trust in the ability of Bulgarian people to change their own country. “Corruption problems have to be solved by Bulgarian people by themselves, by good people who would stop the corruption” he said.
Finally he thinks thatBulgarianeeds at least 4 or 5 years to assume European government functions: “Bulgariais not trusted as a country without corruption and it would not be a benefit for Bulgaria and the EU”.
