Romani Lives Matter

Europe continues to oppress its Romani citizens with very little protest against it. This edition looks at the reasons why. It starts with the death of a Romani man in police custody in public earlier this year. But there are also stories of strength and resistance. In Glasgow, in Scotland, for example, the organization Roma Lav is building support across communities. These stories can make is feel angry but also inspired. We also look at the terrible treatment of Palestinians in Israeli prisons.
