2019 Antiziganist Demonstrations
Group led by Alen Pancer, veteran of the Croatian War of Independence, announced antiziganist demonstrations under the title "I want normal life" (Croatian: Želim normalan život) for 1 June 2019 at the county's administrative center in Čakovec. Veljko Kajtazi, Romani of Croatia community' MP in the Croatian Parliament, expressed his surprise with singling out of Roma which disturbed the entire community. MP expressed his dissatisfaction with the fact that the Town of Čakovec did not permit the follow up response demonstration for the next day. Kajtazi's press conference in the Croatian Parliament was interrupted by Croatian Growth MP Hrvoje Zekanović. Independent Serb weekly Novosti wrote that organizer of the demonstration is an activist of Željka Markić and sympathizer of Ruža Tomašić associated with nationalist and right wing groups. Kajtazi underlined that "extreme right-wingers and people who spread hate messages...are not the people who will solve the problem..." Organizers denied antiziganist nature of the demonstration stating that even "among the Roma there are honorable and honest people". European Roma Rights Centre called upon authorities of the Međimurje County to clarify why do they support demonstration stating that it is unacceptable for a multicultural, democratic and antifascist state to tolerate demonstrations against entire groups of people. Prior to gathering, demonstration were condemned by the President of the Union of Roma in Croatia Suzana Krčmar, elected representative of the Međimurje Roma community Matija Oršuš. Pribislavec Municipality Mayoress Višnja Ivačić expressed her full support to demonstration and invited other municipalities in the county to join in.
