Re: Roma Threatened in Macedonia

Dear Martin
I believe you should have noticed that this info, which was also
posted in balkanhr came from a respectable Roma source, Grattan
Puxton, who I do not think he intends spreading false information
about Roma. It would have been better to address your points to him
and perhaps cc them to the list, so as to set the record straight if
necessary. Harsh comments about the messengers who only try to promote
Roma rights (here the human/minority rights lists) - including calls
for outright silencing of the media (and the lists) about Roma in
Macedonia - are not constructive. After all, there is a similar debate
in the specialized patrin list and I do not think it is very
conclusive in either direction.
