Open your mind - go beyond prejudice!

Using a feline metaphor to dispel Roma stereotypes
2'10" 8 April 2019 Council of Europe Strasbourg

There are nearly 10 million Roma living in the 47 member states of the Council of Europe. They suffer from widespread sterotyping, prejudice and discrimination. This video, aimed mainly at children, uses the metaphor of a black cat, which is discriminated because of its association with witchcraft and bad luck. It urges children to confront similarly irrational Roma-related prejudices held by adults, with the aim of better integrating Roma people in mainstream society.
