Roma Who Built Illegally in Bulgaria's Varna 'Can't Have Housing'
Roma residents who erected illegally dozens of homes in a Varna ghetto have no right to be provided with social housing, a regional mayor has said.
Authorities began on Thursday demolishing part of 60 dwellings which are to be bulldozed after having sheltered hundreds of Roma people for years.
Activitists have warned that many of them will remain homeless, though the municipality has vowed to offer temporary accommodation to some.
Hristo Hristov, the mayor of Mladost neighborhood where the Maksuda ghetto is located, told the Bulgarian National Radio on Friday that the Varna municipality is just "doing its job" by removing the buildings and is carrying out an order that should have been put into practice a year ago.

I must have a home for free. I worked hard playing the loud music and in general the hours of anti social behaviour put in it must be my right! And then is the time and money the authorities spend on me is surely another reason I must be given a free home!
Welcome to the EU Gruefski, where the locals must pay and pay while the amenities must be given to everyone who arrives here - especially if they have never worked or made a positive contribution to their adopted country - while the locals who paid get pushed further and further towards the back of the queue
How about giving houses/apartments FOR FREE to all homeless citiznes of Bulgaria? not only to ethnic Gypsies but also to ethnic Bg, Turks, Greeks, Armenians and so on
There are quite a few ethnic Bulgarians with no home yet they are discriminated against these Gipsies as if Bulgaria was primarily a country of the Gypsies and not one of ethnic Bulgarians.
