Break the prejudices
The competition was opened to all the students of secondary schools of first or second degree who attended the screening of Container 158.
The contest had two sections
Open letter to all ..
Students had to write an open letter to their mayor, newspapers, the Prime Minister, everyone they thoutgh can or should listen. Young participants had to ask in their own words and in reference to the reality of their territory, that the institutions cease to implement ghetto and discriminatory policies towards Roma and Sinti communities.
In a civilized country can not exist institutionalized discrimination of its citizens based on their ethnicity. Local governments can combat exclusion and ghettoisation in many ways: through appropriate legislation, implementing programs to promote social inclusion, promoting a proper culture of inclusion, fighting prejudice and misinformation.
Shoot your spot against prejudice
Students had to shot their own spot with their cell phone to dispel the prejudices against the Roma and Sinti.
Objective: to dispel the prejudices about the Roma and Sinti with humor and originality promote public awareness, through the deconstruction of prejudices and stereotypes linked to Roma landscape, and promote the training of young Roma and Sinti activists who are committed to protecting human rights in their communities.
The Jury was composed by the authors of the film, by the representatives of ZaLab and associations, organizations, activists and journalists active in defending the rights of Roma. All videos had been posted on fb “Container 158,” on the film’s blog, on twitter.
