The Craica settlement in the city of Baia Mare is home to one of Romania's largest Roma communities -- a subgroup of the Romani people, also known as "gypsies". Recently, 30 families were evicted after they received demolition notices from the police

Unfortunately, from the photo given the house shown would be condemned here in the U.S. as well as being a health and safety hazard. However based on the historical actions against the gypsies I rather doubt health and safety concerns were the reason for the demolition order. And I think it likely that numerous other non-gypsy Romanians live in similar conditions without being harassed by the authorities.

"the house shown would be condemned here in the U.S. as well as being a health and safety hazard"

I guess one could decide not to live in it, or even walk near it then. If we believe in personal responsibility (rather than a nanny State "looking after" us), then I would leave it up to the Roma where they decide to shelter themselves.

Tragedies happen, sure, but structures stand a lot longer than people think sometimes. Their place certainly looks to be a better option than living next to a sewage treatment plant or a garbage dump. The only way anyone should be forced out of anywhere is if they are on someone's private property and the owner doesn't want them there.
