DEMOCRATIC TRANSITION CAN – BRING STRONGER ROMA VOICE

    Roma around the world will be celebrating next year the Golden Jubilee of the World Roma Congress, the forum that marked a new awakening of national consciousness and gave us the Romani flag, anthem Dzelem Dzelem and  our 8 Apil Roma Nation Day.

    Facing as we are the duel crises brought on by rising anti-Roma racism and the Covid pandemic, this celebration offers a unique opportunity to fight back against adversity.

    Already plans are in hand for a Jubilee World Roma Congress centred in Berlin and linked  to cities across the globe. Moreover, the Jubilee will see the promotion of a new electronic voting system, which aims to make it possible to hol broadbased democratic elections.

   The Democratic Transition offers the possibility of bringing greater legitimacy and accountability Roma political representation. A reform that can ensure men and women [16 years old and above] can excerize their democratic rights through a process they own and control.

    The outcome will be a stronger collective political voice. A voice and an influence in the political arena commensurate with our ever growing numbers. After all, we are not a minority but an emerging nation; a nation without borders.

    In the longer term DT aims to build, with your active participation, a Roma Nation Mandate; such a mandate as will command recognition of Roma entitlement to a realization of a people’s sovereignty. The DT system has been developed using the latest IT technology, with the best available security. Every voter will be able to verify the counting and outcome of each election.

    Thus the 2021 Jubilee Congress, drawing upon communities throughout the Roma Diaspora and open to all organizations and individuals, will have the possibility of creating a more united movement, a movement of freshly inspired activists – with a team leadership approved and underpinned by an active majority

    Many details of this transformation will be under debate in the months before this seminal Congress. Through European Roma newas, and through online discussions open to all, you will be able to follow and participate in the decision-making guiding the reform.

Many of you, I urge, will take this opportunity to become listed voters. Some of you maye wish to put yourselves forward as Candidates [More information about that on request] All that is required is an email address, and a note naming your city of residence.

These may be forwarded here to the offices of European Roma news  or sent to Romavote@gmail.com
