News Alert on 24M-2015 Elections

The vote is our greatest weapon

Down below you will find the names and photographs of those gypsies who are candidates in the next MUNICIPAL AND AUTONOMOUS ELECTIONS.

As we said a few days ago, we believe that this type of publicity is good for various reasons.

Firstly: Because it encourages our people to participate. If we really want gypsies to be the protagonists of our own destiny and administrators of our freedom, we must utilise the best and most effective means available to the citizens of a democratic State – political participation. Our voice, the voice of the gypsies, must be heard in parliaments and local councils. We must be the ones to bear witness to our struggle and concerns. United, of course, with the other party representatives whose ranks we are members of. However, I insist, it must be a gypsy who takes the floor to say what happens to us and what we want.

Secondly: Because, in our view, taking part in an election campaign is good experience for gaining confidence and losing fear of speaking in public. It is necessary for the gadchés to know that we, the gypsies, have both the strength and ability to properly express what we want.

Thirdly: Because we have to demonstrate that we represent a very important electoral force. A community like ours, with a population of around 750,000 people, can be a decisive factor when it comes to shaping governmental teams in both autonomous parliaments and the local councils of our towns and cities.

And finally: Because we are tired of seeing how some political parties ignore us and even, at times, deceive us. They make promises to us at election time and then forget their commitments. For this reason, it is essential that the word ‘gypsy’ is heard in those places where laws are written or measures are taken which seriously affect all citizens.

Making these names known in society can not only benefit them if they receive a vote, but also clearly demonstrates that we are a people that, without giving up our position as gypsies, fully participates in building a free and democratic society where the right to vote is our main tool for building a better society.
