Cleaning campaign in Bratsigovo

Positive dialogue and taking responsibility in Bratsigovo, Bulgaria

During the past months, the town witnessed some tensions between the Roma and the non-Roma that led to a point in which a petition was sent to the municipality demanding the removal of some illegal Roma houses. As a result of the dialogue and community actions, the Bulgarian residents in the neighborhood retracted their petition from the municipality.
