Way to pick 'em...

You're part of an oppressed minority.
Your people have been persecuted for more than eight centuries.
You've had enough.
You want to live somewhere friendly and safe, in a place famous for its tolerance, a place where history is one long story of man helping his fellow man.
So you choose Belfast.

As long as your traditional way of life does not negatively affect the population around you. As politically incorrect as it may seem, there have been problems specifically with this group, for centuries. Where there's smoke.... Does not excuse the actions of the locals, though.

I wonder if the Irish Travelers (Gypsies) are receiving the same treatment or is this specific to the Romanians?

Seems to be just the Romanians in this instance. I think the Travellers stay in the Republic.

Unfortunately, there are strong prejudices against romani in most Western European countries... It's sad, really.

There are Travellers (or Tinkers) in the United States. Just watch "The Riches" on Showcase.

The pandora charms started in Copenhagen, Denmark. It then grew into its own industry exceeding the expectations of the original makers.To sum it up, I love this site. I always use it when I am working because it requires zero user input to run for hours, especially once you have rated lots of songs.
