Voices of Resistance Campaign 2020 – Ritchy from France

We would like to introduce a 16 years old French traveller who is resisting against the human rights violations and fight against those who wants to oppress the Roma traditions and cultures:

“My name is Ritchy Thibault, I am 16 years old. I am a French traveller and I resist. I resist the attacks against our freedom and our fundamental rights as human beings. My will to resist and to not resign comes from my Rromani background because, since the arrival of our Rromani ancestors in Europe, our existence is a daily fight against those who wish to put an end to our way of life and to our culture. Long live to Rromani Resistance!”

Special thanks to Anina Ciuciu!

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.
