The Campaign in Solidarity with the Roma of Donbass


In towns like Kramatorsk, Slavyansk and Dzerzhinsk, the shelter sometimes was the one and only hope to survive. Unfortunately, shelters proved not to be for everybody : in some places there simply was a lack of space , in others only those who worked (in the coal mines for instance) were allowed or one had to be resident of certain buildings to obtain entry. Therefore, it happened on a regular basis that Roma town inhabitants, would find themselves without any place to hide during the fighting when whole towns could be under fire.
