short video "we are the change"

​Through the voice of young Roma from five European countries, this short video sends a message about the power of Roma youth to bring change and claim their rights. One way to overcome discrimination against Roma and ensure an equal society is by having Roma, in particular young Roma, involved in politics. The young people in this video come from Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Spain. The video includes subtitles in different languages.
