Gypsies, travellers and human rights
Friends, Families and Travellers is a group that seeks to end racism and discrimination against gypsies and travellers, whatever their ethnicity, background and culture. Their website has a section on the Human Rights Act in relation to gypsies and other travellers. The page does say that the legal advice may now be out of date.
Also on Amnesty blogs, see Coinneach on Scottish gypsy travellers.
Our blogs are written by Amnesty International staff, volunteers and other interested individuals, to encourage debate around human rights issues. They do not necessarily represent the views of Amnesty International.
