‘Institutional’ Gives Way To ‘Environmental’…

Europe’s Roma communities are often living on polluted wastelands and lacking running water or sanitation in their homes as a result of “environmental racism”, a report has concluded.

Not the fact they turn every area they settle in into refuse-strewn wastelands, then?

The European Environmental Bureau (EEB), a pan-European network of green NGOs, found Roma communities were often excluded from basic services, such as piped drinking water, sanitation and rubbish collection, while frequently living at or near some of the dirtiest sites in Europe, such as landfills or contaminated industrial land.

How exactly are they ‘excluded’ from these services?

The northern Hungarian city of Ózd received nearly €5.5m (£4.8m) from Switzerland to improve provision of running water to Roma communities, but researchers said many had not benefited from the scheme.

Authorities claimed Roma households did not pay their bills.

Ah. The same way I’m ‘excluded’ from Ferrari-ownership, then…

Meanwhile Roma communities not living on degraded land risk eviction, without legal recourse. About 100 Roma people living in Constanƫa in Romania were forced to move to allow for the creation of a holiday resort.

So what? That’s hardly exclusive to them, is it?

The EEB is now calling on EU authorities and member states to increase efforts to protect health, while urging them to recognise the scale of the problem. “We need to acknowledge that environmental racism exists in Europe. That is the first step,” Heidegger said.

No thanks. We’ve seen the damage accepting the concept of ‘institutional racism’ did.

    The whole concept of ‘environmental racism’ is bunk and the sort of cack that the New York congresswoman Occasio-Cortez vomits out. I note that this ‘environmental racism’ doesn’t seem to have stopped these Roma scumbags from making whips and using them on British subjects in Sheffield. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7706034/roma-children-slovakian-migrants-sheffield-shock/

      Ugh! Like Somalis, this ‘race’ contributes nothing…

    It was interesting that the slums the Roma are living in, in The UK, are owned, in the main, by Pakistani landlords. If the properties were owned by white, Tory voting, Brexiteers, the media would be full of nothing else, covid19 notwithstanding.
    Where are the Corbyns, the Abbott’s, the Long-Bailey’s in their vilification of this situation? Could it be they see their voter base disappearing if they did? Answers on the back of an envelope.

      Oh, I think we know the answers. They are made clear by the silence.
