Voices of Resistance 2020 – Israel from Spain

In this video you can hear Israel from Spain, studying History and working for Fagic:

“My name is Israel, I am a young Roma from the neighborhood of La Mina. I work at FAGIC and I am studying History. Romani Resistance Day is for me an example of the survival of people with a common purpose: fight for their rights and freedom!”

Special thanks to Federació Assoc Gitanes Fagic!

The ‘Voices of Resistance’ online campaign invites every young Roma to testify their own resistance stories! Through this online campaign we want to empower young Roma people to share their good examples of staying active in such difficult times of crisis as well. Stay tuned, watch our videos and be part of our online resistance!

The Voices of Resistance campaign is part of the Roma Youth Voices Project, coordinated by Phiren Amenca and funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the DG Justice, European Commission.
