Gypsy community face 'unacceptable' conditions - MP

 

The subcommission's mission is to draw up a report by June on racism, xenophobia and ethnic-racial discrimination.

 

MP and author of the report underway, Catarina Marcelino, said on Monday in Bragança that she found an "unacceptable" situation for the 21st century following her visit to gypsy communities in the Formarigos neighbourhood.

 

She said it was MPs responsibility to call the attention to those with political and public responsibilities in order to change the situation.
