The Romedia Foundation , a Romani non-governmental organization based in Budapest, wrote  about anti-Roma demonstrations and rising attacks on the Roma population in recent months in the Czech Republic.
In light of recent actions taken by a vast number of people, during the last 2 months, the violent riots in Czech Republic, which have been solely addressed towards the exclusion and eradication of Roma people, relates a somewhat grim mentality that an unfortunate amount of people share in the country- on extremely important values relating to human rights. These mentalities used to be shared on a large scale only within neo-Nazi and extremist circles, however since 2011 there has been a considerable, visible increase in followers of the neo-Nazi and extremist mentalities.
