In this petition, Amnesty International calls on signatories to stand up where governments are failing and to urge the EU to step in to end the discrimination the Roma face on a daily basis. EU member states are failing to enforce EU anti-discrimination law. Instead, they are adopting discriminatory policies that target the Roma or allowing for discrimination to go unchecked.
