Witnessing Historic moments

Last week I was able to attend the annual meeting of European Roma and Travellers Forum. The Forum is a body which was initiated by the Finnish government. Only Roma can become delegates representing their home countries or NGOs. The Forum is seen as representing European Roma and has the task of communicating with international organisations about Roma issues.
Since the Forum is still in its baby shoes it is really interesting to see which obstacles it is facing in becoming a well functioning and reknown institution. The beginning is never easy and I wonder how the Forum will look like in 10 years......

PS. As a groupie it was also really cool to meet almost all European Roma rights activist in person, after having read their publications for the last couple of years....
