More Czechs disapprove of violence against Roma
21-11-2012 - Masha Volynsky

Negative attitudes among Czech towards the Roma minority have stayed the same since last October, but violence towards the group is more frowned upon, according to the latest survey by the STEM agency. Seventy-one percent of the respondents expressed some level of dislike for Romani people, only 4% less than in April 2011. Yet, 69% of people are opposed to violence against the Roma, which is a third more than at the same time last year. Those supporting violence make up 16% of the respondents, while a year ago it was also 25%. According to the survey, almost a quarter of the population has no opinion about or views members of the Romani community the same as any other, while 5% percent have a good or very good opinion of the minority.
