Far right in Czech Republic: the politicians turning on Roma


Hostility towards Roma people is so ingrained in Czech political life, the country’s president recently called them “work shy”, and in this weekend’s Czech municipal elections some politicians are openly stirring up virulent anti-Roma sentiment. In the city of Most, just north of Prague, some local parties are advocating building a separate area for Roma people and using slogans which hark back to Nazi-style propaganda. A warning: this film contains views which many will find offensive.
