Bumped for fresh persecution:
"In all, around 700 Roma will be taken back to their countries before the end of the month," said Brice Hortefeux, the interior minister.

So far, police have dismantled 51 illegal Roma camps, he said, adding that two flights would take the Roma to Romania and Bulgaria on August 19 and 26, with a third flight set for the end of September.

President Sarkozy's government has in recent weeks launched a major and controversial crackdown on France's Roma, gipsy and traveller minorities, closing unauthorised camps and expelling foreign-born Roma from the country.

Last month, following a clash between Gypsies and police, Mr Sarkozy announced a raft of new stringent security measures, including plans to dismantle 300 unauthorised campsites within three months.

Critics have accused the French leader of stigmatising travelling minorities in a bid to recover votes lost to the anti-immigration far-Right in time for his re-election battle in 2012.

Silly socialists. Usually pure free market dynamics take care of the "aggressive begging" problem by itself. Panhandling is the one corporate shark tank where it actually pays to be nice and not be an asshole.

On more serious note...what the fuck is it with otherwise benign-seeming European countries and the Roma??? Yeah, we get it...you got a refugee problem. Deal with it constructively. Willfully normalizing society-wide treatment of them as subhuman vermin is just disgusting. And evocative of some pretty goddamn terrible recent regional history. This is a level of overt racism that goes way way beyond the typical "Go home and stop sucking our welfare programs dry, you lazy illegals" sentiment.

I'm completely baffled myself. It's a weird blind spot.
