Romanians and Bulgarians in the UK yesterday held a big protest in front of Prime Minister David Cameron's office at Downing Street 10, London against the government’s discriminatory policies.
More than 300 people from the two communities came together to protest peacefully “against both the inflammatory partisan political rhetoric expressed at the highest levels of British Politics and the silent policy discrimination occurring at certain levels of interaction between Romanians/Bulgarians and the UK government, dominated by an elitist, nationalistic faction.”
Some of the placards carried by the protestors read: “”Education without discrimination”, “Stop Discrimination”, “United against UK and Media Discrimination”, “Citizens, Not Immigrants”, etc.
Larisa Arama, Sales & Marketing Manager of Ziarul Romanesc Weekly said the protest was a big success.
Paul Suciu, one of the organisers of the protest noted that just recently the Education Minister “decided to cut down finance tuition for Bulgarian/Romanian students and then for all groups, unilaterally, without consulting the parties involved and by illegally and abusively recuperating the money from the students accounts, through reverting the initial deposits.”
