A little education

A friend of mine just shared an interesting link about the Roma in Moldova.  I encourage you to check it out.  Here is the explanation of the video: In partnership with the Roma organization "Opre O Ciacimos" we have created one of the first Moldovan Roma films. It wishes to counter negative Roma stereotypes through the voices of the Roma themselves. This film has become the center of a new media campaign in Moldova, it will be used to focus community discussions, spark critical thinking in children and be shown to the European Union.


  1. Wow Em, does Roma mean Romanian?

  2. Roma is actually the politically correct name given to the Gypsy population of Moldova. The term Gypsy implies origins from Egypt. Check out this Wikipedia article for more information and resources:

  3. Viewed this with my Parenting Class today. Very informative and eye-opener for everyone. Thank your for providing all this info. Cooley
