Police gearing up for more anti-Romany protests

Police in the towns of Plzen, České Budějovice, Duchcov, Jičín and Ostrava are gearing up for anti-Romany marches organized by ultra right groups and movements. The marches planned for Saturday are proclaimed to be against abuse of the welfare system and black racism. Police will be out in force to maintain law and order with reinforcements stationed around Romany-inhabited areas. The country’s intelligence service recently warned of the danger of growing anti-Romany sentiments among the white majority population.
