The following quotes are real. The author is the middle manager in charge of the Roma Unit of the European Commission. The Unit is part of the Directorate General (DG) Justice.
“The aim of this event [3rd -Roma Summit] is not to consult civil society but rather to provide the opportunity to renew the political commitments and ensure that the implementation of the EU Framework is moving forward where it makes a difference, at local level.”
Price tag for these colossally important renewals, moving forward, making differences, ensuring committed opportunities: a meager 500 000 to 1 000 000 EUR of public money.
The joy and happiness in the hearts of the millions of Roma who will be “moved forward” at the “local level”: priceless.
Hail to the Commission for making it crystal clear that the Summit has one concrete objective: NOT to consult civil society.
