'ERRC' reports that 100 Roma will be evicted by the Municipality of Cosenza and placed in a segregated tent camp. The eviction is part of an earlier, larger plan targeting another 400 Roma residing in the Vaglio Lise informal camp who will be left on the street. “This planned eviction will have serious consequences on the well-being and lives of the Roma residents, in particular their children. Instead of insuring their integration, the plans appear to stigmatise and exclude them on the basis of their race.” - says András Ujlaky, Executive Director of ERRC of the community that has been living there for 10 years already.
