Bulgaria: Bulgaria's Euroroma Threatens Blockades on Major Roads Photo: BGNES

The Euroroma party posed an ultimatum to the Stara Zagora Mayor Zhivko Todorov the stop the demolition of illegal Roma houses in the city, reports news.bg. 

The party threatened that its supporters will block the major roads in the country, unless the demolition was stopped immediately. According to the party, the actions of the municipality were in violation of a ruling of the European Court of Human Rights, which was mandatory. 

Meanwhile, the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee human rights organisation also condemned the actions of the Stara Zagora city hall and threatened to sue the state. 

According to the NGO, the state was “practicing institutional racist violence”.

The operation for the demolition of the illegal Roma houses in the Stara Zagora Lozenets district continues today. On Monday the municipal authorities, supported by police in riot gear, bulldozed a little over 30 of the 55 condemned houses.

"The properties have been built ILLEGALLY if they are not removed (and i do not wish to see anyone homeless)
it could cause and set a president"

Yes, removing those illegal houses could set the next President of Bulgaria. Hahahahahahaha.

Baboon, learn to write and then you can opine. Otherwise you are setting a PRECEDENT for the rest of us to think of you as an uneducated and ignorant monkey (probably not far from the truth though).

The top speed of the vehicle was 98 mph. It could do zero to 60 mph in 14 seconds, run a quarter mile in just shy of 20 seconds and had a combined fuel economy of a scant 10 mpg.

The properties have been built ILLEGALLY if they are not removed (and i do not wish to see anyone homeless)
it could cause and set a president anyone could take a piece of land and build a house without permission and then claim the protection of the EU Humans rights laws .

Also should the Bulgarian people who have PAID for the permission and land to build there homes ask the Government for their money to be refunded

The Human Rights ACT is there for those who ACT LEGALLY Not to assist in ILLEGAL ACTS.
The human rights groups like many others read and then turns the wording around to suit their own agendas if they are allowed to continue around the world twisting the laws of the countries we will eventually have no LAW each and everyone will do as he or she pleases.

The Roma do have the right like anyone else to have a place to live BUT it must be through LEGAL process .
not just arrive and decided to do as they wish .

Again, another benefit of the great European Union project. The EU and friends are too concerned about the rights of people who build illegal and dirty buildings in parks, than the rights of Bulgarian to live in some sort of civilized society, with standards and norms. Bulgarian police are so demoralized, to see their powers limited in a wave of anti-social behavior, in which strong laws and discipline are required. EU countries (France, England, Germany) tear down these illegal camps and houses, and thats ok, but Bulgarians are expected to tolerate this, and live in filth. The EU is a one way game,,,good and clean for the west countries, and a bad deal and filth for the east countries.
