Dear friends and colleagues,
Unfortunately, on Sunday (29 July 2012) the 59-years-old Roma victim of the bomb attack which took place a month earlier in the town of Sandanski, died from his injuries in the Military Medical Academy of Sofia, Bulgaria. Malin Iliev was buried in his hometown Sandanski, today (31 July 2012).
Four young men of Bulgarian ethnic origin were arrested by the Police authorities for the bomb attack in Sandanski, all of them belong to a local Nationalistic group. While the leading world news agencies were concerned about the terrorist attack against the Israeli tourists at the Burgas airport, they remained silent regarding the Anti-Roma terrorism in Bulgaria which is escalating after the Katunica pogroms last year.
It is clear that Roma need a Strategy, but Strategy for Survival in a situation of growing Anti-Ziganism in Europe.
