Dear Brothers, Amare Kamle Phral,
Yesterday we had with some European Roma and collaborators an interesting chat on Skype, in reference to the globalization of our people, where we talked about the need to create a global network for Roma, due to the fact that the Eurocentrism that currently exists in some European organizations is dangerously damaging the future of our People and is taking us apart from our goals as an existing nation in all continents.
For many years in the Americas we have been talking about this subject, the subject of the union of the Romani Nation, regardless of the different policies that the Romani Organizations, each European country and the European Union in particular have developed against or in favor of our People. In this respect, the Romani People of the Americas during the past 2 decades was sending to the governments of the countries of our vast continent documents concerning the need that our People have to show itself as an international and unique People, as a true Nation without any territorial pretension.
In preparation for the international conference against racism and xenophobia held in Durban in August / September 2001, in Quito, Ecuador, in March of that same year the Romani People of the Americas, represented by different associations, prepared an international document which has been known as: The Other Son of Pacha Mama / Mother Earth: Declaration of the Roma People of Americas, which was published in 3 languages, Spanish, English (this version should be carefully revised) and Romani, we would like to discuss with all of you, our European brothers and sisters, about what has been written in this document, here I am sending it as an attachment, it would be very important if we could put together a debate in this regard, on the desirability of being united worldwide as a true Nation, despite the different policies developed in certain European or American countries in favor of our People. Thank you.
