“Roma: a Problem or an Opportunity?”



Around 30 people protested and threw eggs, as Hungarian Minister for Human Resources, Zoltan Balog, spoke at a conference at Zurich University.

The police intervened when the demonstrators outside the conference began throwing eggs as the conservative minister gave his lecture, entitled “Hungary’s Roma – a problem or an opportunity?”

Activists say that Hungary’s Roma population, the country’s largest but poorest minority, faces open discrimination with anti-Roma rhetoric and violence on the rise.
