Gypsies speak out against racism | Workers' Liberty

We’re fighting to stay here but we’re living in muddy conditions where you can’t get on and off the site unless it’s in a four-wheel drive. We’ve got a disabled girl here with cerebral palsy. She walks on sticks and can’t get to her car. If the council would give us somewhere else to go I would happily leave tomorrow. I’d like the people of Europe to see how people live in this condition. In mud. Not out of choice but out of necessity. We can’t go in houses because we won’t live in houses. We want to go somewhere where we can live in our caravans and keep our heritage together.
