Leaflet for Roma demonstration in Manchester

Leaflet:

Text:

Roma people in Italy are under attack. The Italian government has passed a series of laws restricting the movement and freedoms of Roma people. All Roma people are being targeted as potential criminals and harsh laws condemning illegal immigrants to many years imprisonment are being used against Roma communities. Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian President under investigation for corruption, has put troops on the streets and used the newspapers and TV stations that he owns to stoke hatred and fear.

Already, Roma people have been attacked and burned out of their homes as a result of this campaign of hate from the very top of the Italian government.

Join the AF, No Borders and Roma groups to oppose this vicious campaign.
Demonstrate at the Italian Consulate, Manchester
111 Piccadilly, Manchester, M1 2HY
Friday September 19th at 11.30am
