Voices of Resistance 2020 – William from France

Let us introduce William, a young Traveller lawyer from France who wants to support the Romani resistance with his work:

“Hello, my name is William Acker. I’m a lawyer and I’m one the French Travellers. Currently I am cataloging the places reserved for Travellers in France. I am compiling data and testimonies to bring out real figures on the realities of relegation and environmental racism. And I really hope that this work will support struggles on the ground, and this is also Romani resistance!”

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.
