Prague sees Roma Pride parade

A parade known as ‘Roma Pride’ took place in Prague on Sunday afternoon celebrating Roma culture. The group organizing the event aimed to inform the public on the situation regarding minorities in the country, charging that the government’s integration policy had failed in areas. The group has also warned about rising anti-Roma sentiment. The parade began at 3 pm local time at Palacký square and made its way to the historic Old Town Square; a discussion was scheduled after the event. Roma Pride was slated to take place not only in the Czech capital on Sunday but also in 14 other European cities.
