Respect My rights

Sorry, this challenge has now ended.

Keep exploring to add your voice to another challenge.

Marius is 16. In one year, he has been evicted from his home eight times. The first time his home was bulldozed before he even had a chance to pack his suitcase. Marius lost everything - cards, identification documents, pictures, toys...

The only thing he was able to take were his shoes.

Imagine you were evicted from your home and had only seconds to collect your belongings...what is the one thing you would take?

Upload a picture of yourself with the one thing you would take and tell us why everybody needs it to make their house a home.

We will feature the most inspiring solidarity pictures and messages on the homepage of on our official launch in October.

You can also check out Facebook to see if we feature you

Did you know?

Being Roma and living in Italy isn’t easy. Since the beginning of this year, well over a  thousand Roma people living in Rome and Milan have been forced to leave their homes.

In many cases, like Marius, they were given no time to collect their things and were left with nowhere to go. These forced evictions continue to take place all over Italy.

A house is much, much more than a roof over your head. The right to adequate housing is a human right no matter who you are or where you’re from.

Take action!

TELL PRIME MINISTER MONTI it’s time to end segregation and forced evictions of Roma in Italy!
