Roma NGO calls on gov’t to adopt national action plan

The Roma Civic Alliance (ACR) urges the Romanian government to pass a national Action Plan for Roma, following the example of the EU’s relevant commitment.

“We call on Romania’s government to follow the example of the three states , take note of these EU-level decisions and urgently pass the National Action Plan of the Decade of Roma Inclusion,” Agerpres quoted ACR President David Mark as saying.

The ACR official praised the Spanish government, “which not only made the Roma issue into a priority Europe-wide, but also passed a National Plan for Roma Development, with EUR 107 M already budgeted for promoting access to education, health, occupancy, dwelling and culture for the nearly 700,000 Roma in Spain.”

The ACR release follows the second European Roma Summit, April 8-9, Cordoba, Spain, where participant countries decided the Roma issue is a European priority, and the EU chairmanship trio – Spain, Hungary and Belgium – have decided that the European Union needs to take special measures for resolving this topic.
