The new camp

Here life is squeaky clean. The Rom gypsies are healthier, their feet are dry, the kids have a table and light and can do their homework.

There are house searches at night between 2 and 3. The kids wake up, are scared and cranky.

When asked whether they were happy the women acknowledged their better conditions but said they were like 'birds in a cage'. At midnight the gate is closed, if they need to go out early the have to ring and will be let out.

Cameras are every where. What is the balance between clean and free?


  1. I must have missed something. What is this, a new form of dissident prison?

  2. I miss the horse manure, and colored wagons. And where are the musicians ???? Better solution is to allow, and encourage variety. Too much cement can make people and horses CRAZY ! j
