With prejudice and indignation rife across Europe following France’s expulsion of Roma to Romania, Spain has emerged as a successful test case for the long-term integration of the troubled ethnic group
In a season where Italy, France and Germany have received criticism from human rights groups for their treatment and expulsion of the Roma minority, Spain has emerged as a shining EU example of how to deal with an ethnic group which has a complicated relationship with modern European life.

Amycommunications: on 2010-10-17 18:09:23 I am sorry but i don't have that time yet to read on the full topic. Let me please give you indications on my resources and feedback as a journalist: first of all, please do read the Annual Report on practicing the human rights in Romania, the period of 2008-2009 (it is to be found on the American Embassy official website in Bucharest and it is more than true, mainly because it is shown there the people in real sufference and discrimination are the common Romanians but the gipsies, indeed). Another reason for i am with mr. Szarkozi and our ex-Antonescu to had been deported the gipsies outside Romania in the past, but with CEDO in this matter of the social life is that they are minorities(and not any minorities but with a very ancient and not-productive culture for any civilisation and juridical culture anywhere in the world). So, why do you mourn for them but the Romanians to be civilised, indeed?? Me, Amy Neagoe, i have told you this in every single year: what have you done, up to now, except for following your very private interests(political and very individual in the 1st degree )?
And yes, of course i do agree with the item that everyone has to build his or her's private and personal life, but contrary to that it is to be familiar that anything in any life it is inter-related and linked and it is good it is like that. The Nature is like this but also the Nature has the /individual/right to make selections every step and it really does. They are ţigani and gipsies but rromi and they have to be named like this, as they are not a brand to have the right to change their name!! They are and have been and will always be a minority if you do not keep on disregarding the brightest and the very workful and productive and straight people anymore!! Turn back to the ancient form of democratical values and turn back to the very straight principles in Human Rights Legislation and you'll see what is about!! Re-start thinkiung like a bright ambitious but poor person for that, start it again, this will be your last chance in the world, as life changes so fast as you can't watch it, indeed!!

Please do regard my Amy Neagoe account on Facebook.com as you could see why i liked the politics of Mr. Szarkozi twds. the gipsies in France. As education does not lasts forever in any civilised and very social life,and people are not equal but in front of the judge, you know..
