Attack against Roma in Hatvan

2010.05.22. Hungary, Hatvan (Heves county)

Burning gasoline cans were thrown in a house inhabited by gypsies (1)
 More "Molotov cocktails" were thrown this morning in a house inhabited by Roma in Hatvan (Heves county). The police are also investigating whether there are ethnic thread in the story.

(3) Here in particular, comments clearly show the attitude of the far-right, neo-arrow-cross(4), a typical manifestation of racist forces: very aggressive, hip refused to "theirs" would be the perpetrators, or that the Roma would be attacked respectively (though they would have more information than the news-agency published  ...?). And at the same time, however, a concentrated, rough, visceral racism is flowing from their words.

(4) Neo-arrow-cross is Hungarian neo-nazi, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrow_Cross_Party
