Candlelight vigil to commemorate the Hungarian Roma victims of hate crime

by kristyna balaban

On February 21, 2012 in Parkdale, Toronto a candlelight vigil was held to commemorate the Hungarian Roma victims of hate crime perpetrated in Hungary over the past few years by openly racist, “anti-Gypsy” paramilitary groups. It was also an opportunity for people to come together and show moral support for the newcomer roma community who are being targeted by the new legislative changes in Bill C- 31 and the ongoing delegitimizing of their claims for asylum in Canada.
