Over one hundred people join Roma Pride march in Prague
Over a hundred people joined the fourth Roma Pride march through the centre of Prague on Sunday afternoon. The event is an annual celebration of Romany culture and identity and aims to draw attention to the discrimination of Romanies in the Czech Republic, be it in the sphere of housing, education or on the job market. Similar Roma Pride marches took place in 13 European capitals. There are estimated to be around a quarter of a million Romanies living in the Czech Republic.
