Whether we are allowed to stay or whether we must leave, whether we must spend our winters crammed together in some location or in a ghetto, whether our children are sent to kindergartens or schools for children with "special needs", by whom they will be taught, whether we get jobs or whether we are allowed to run our own businesses, whether we are allowed access to pubs and bars, whether we are admired and applauded like circus animals or whether we are despised as strangers, whether we are, every once in a while, viewed upon as individual human beings or whether we are all put in the same category;
All of this has always depended on you.


It has depended on your decisions about us and without us. And even whether or not we have the right to live has depended on you for centuries. We have been at your mercy!


You have registered us, surrounded us and fenced us in, you have forced us to settle and you have deported us, you have taken our children away, "civilised" and converted them, educated and raised them, adapted and criminalised them, You have medicated and defended us, advised, supported and represented us, you have discussed, spoken and written about us, negotiated and debated in our name – WITHOUT US!


We have always been your "problem" – your "marginal people" – your "clients" – your "minority" – your "gypsies" – your "objects" – your "victims" – your "musicians and artists,"
You have always been our benefactors or malefactors!


And it has served you well. Through us, you have gotten jobs and earned money.
You have built yourselves careers in science and professional reputations, you have known satisfaction and sometimes disappointment: All of this has been your life and you have lived it in total security. When you didn’t want us anymore, we were on our own again.


From now on, we would like to be all the things that you have been for us up to now: Workers and entrepreneurs, employees and public officials, lawyers, educators, teachers and social workers, priests and journalists, students and professors, judges and politicians, citizens…
Just like you and your children.


To reach this goal, we need your solidarity!
