Column by Andriano Djeladin Roma News: Collectivity or individualism?

In recent days, months, years, social networks have been commenting on how Roma can find fault with Roma in order to harm some people's authority, influence both on a personal and professional level, and what is the most tragic of all this they write it in the Macedonian language, so that Macedonians can also applaud us for our internal Roma disagreements.

They point out who is worth more, for more likes and comments on FB, but that is not the real measure of your visibility, nor a measure of how influential you are, and every time the discussion is aimed at taking over the collective interests, but unfortunately they continue they work on individual interests, and with that is measured who is worth how much.

It is understandable that each of us has our own individual values, but that value needs to be directed towards each other, and thus we know how we can use our individualism in the collective interest, and once and for all work in the interest of the community because in our discussions, the community is always in the last place, and others discriminate us, segregate us and we are still invisible in society, and what do we do as a collective or individuals to change that image? (We drive the nail even deeper).

As individuals, we should first ask ourselves, before we enter into a discussion out of ignorance, and just spend our time on social networks, why are we in this situation today?

The responsibility or the question should be directed towards the people for whom we voted in some elections, if they are of a local nature, we should refer to the Mayor, if it is national, from the people we voted for in the parliamentary elections

For those people we voted for, they have the greatest responsibility and to answer our questions about why our community is in this state now, because they created the discussion with their partners from Kalisia, how to improve the life of the Roma in the country. , they should say why it is blocked, what is the reason, and why the implementation is unsuccessful, is there any problem why the community is not advanced in the system solutions in inclusion, or in general maybe the current policies are implemented by incompetent people? And now that the community, through various initiatives, through fresh energy, is trying to change the narrative, are other political parties waking up from their deep sleep, and entering the discussions with criticism of the new fresh energy?

They need to understand that they had such strength and power, that they could do so far, because that time was different, where the non-Roma were offered some jobs to change their personal situation, but not to the community, and that's why we wonder do we see the interest of «Collectivity or individualism». If we look at collectivism, then it's time for them to come out and say from experience that they really made a mistake in some things, and that the new young fresh energy, the initiative is needed not to repeat those mistakes, so that the future generations who want to do not go the same way results collective for their community. And I will finish this column with one more thing, which in recent days came out as official - unofficial information, that the president of PCER, Mr. Samka Ibraimovski, will run in the next elections as a presidential candidate of the state. On the one hand, it is good to have a Roma candidate, but we need to think about whether this will show the mainstream parties how much the Roma votes are worth, or will it be harmful to the Roma electorate? Let me explain: If all the Roma really stand behind that candidacy and that will show how things stand for the Parliamentary elections, how big the Roma electorate is and it will represent a firm benchmark, but do we believe that all the Roma political parties will stand behind that candidate in the first round (why it won't even get further), and knowing the faction that happens when non-Roma people attach great importance to us and pat us on the shoulder, we very quickly forget the collectivity, and adapt to individual interests, so that they can finish their personal affairs. .

On the other hand, if he is running as a Roma candidate who is known as "deja vu", as is Samka Ibraimvski, someone out of spite and anger will not work with his membership in support of his candidacy, and imagine now, a Roma candidate who has only for example 7,000 votes, what message will be sent to the mainstream parties for the Parliamentary elections?

The trial against four prison officers for beating a Roma prisoner in Idrizovo has begun and ended, for all four three-year suspended sentences.

Exactly after almost ten months, the trial against the four police officers employed in Idrizov has started these days. This was also informed by the lawyer M.Sc. Shenaj Osmanov, a defense attorney in the court case related to the beaten S.A. Lawyer Osmanov indicated that the trial began in the Basic Criminal Court of Skopje against the four police officers employed in the Idrizovo Correctional Facility who on the night of 31.12.2022 at around 2:20 a.m. inflicted physical injuries on the convicted S.A. from Skopje - Shuto Orizari, and against all four prison officers were charged with mistreatment during the performance of their duties in accordance with Art. 143 of the CC.

From the allegations in the criminal complaint and the evidence in the indictment, the defendants admitted their guilt at the main hearing and declared that they regret the crime they committed and ask the court to impose a lighter sentence on them, promising that in the future they will behave conscientiously and responsibly with all convicted.

By the way, for a reminder related to the case of 31.12.2022 (New Year's Eve 2023), namely, on that same night, the (then) prisoner S.A. was beaten. during that period he was serving his prison sentence in the Idrizovo penitentiary.

And finally, after the closing arguments, the court passed a verdict that all four defendants plead guilty and are sentenced to a suspended sentence, who in the next three years will not be able to commit a new crime similar to this one.

The defense is referring to a civil dispute for a damage claim," informed the lawyer Shenaj Osmanov.

Roma Times: Mr. Dudush, your second term as mayor of the municipality of S. Orizari is already running out. Objectively, how satisfied are you with the activities carried out so far in the municipality?

Kurto Dudush: Considering the fact that we are a municipality with the smallest budget in RSM, I think we have achieved a lot. Here I would list activities that are of crucial importance for our municipality to improve the quality of life and improve the environment:

Protection from flooding of the lower part of Shuto Orizari, 5.2 km storm drain, reconstruction of all main roads throughout the settlement, led smart lighting, construction of children's parks, lifting and permanent removal of all landfills in the inner part of our municipality, reconstruction and reconstruction of the two primary schools, a new kindergarten and many other projects.

KD: We place priority no. 1 on detailed urban plans, the need to bring plans is of crucial importance, a service that we should provide to the citizens, to enable the municipality to expand but also to strengthen the economic development of our municipality by planning of a new commercial industrial zone in which we see potential for future employment, in fact, the potential that we have in our municipality of many young unemployed Roma is also our asset.

RT: How do you evaluate the cooperation with the state (the Government) so far, and does it take enough care of the priorities of the Roma community - with a focus in S. Orizari?

KD: As the only Roma mayor and the only Roma municipality in Europe and beyond, every government, including the current one, should and can help more than what they are practicing at this moment, all the circumstances should be taken into account, the situation in which the Roma community finds itself in us, but also outside our country and to strive to be an example in the region, as with us they have a partner who is ready with a team and projects to enable the realization of all the requests of the European Commission (economic and social rights, housing, education , employment, culture and the position of Roma women).

RT: Do you plan to run for another term as mayor in the municipality of Š. Orizari?

KD: On this question, I would let the citizens have their say, my mandate is until November 2025 and of course if the citizens ask me to do so, it is my obligation to continue with the positive changes for our community and modernization of our municipality.

The only Roma municipality in the world, Šuto Orizari, is celebrating its 27th birthday

September 12 is the day of the municipality of Shuto Orizari. Shuto Orizari began to develop after the catastrophic earthquake of 1963. After the reconstruction of Skopje and its surroundings, the place where today's settlement is located, the predominantly Roma population began to settle. Today, Shuto Orizari is one of the outskirts of today's Skopje. With the gradual shaping of the settlement, the Municipality of Shuto Orizari is beginning to take on the appearance of an urbanized suburban neighborhood. Over time, Shuto Orizari acquired its own administrative and cultural institutions. In 1996, Shuto Orizari, together with the village of Gorno Orizari, formed an independent administrative unit, the municipality of Shuto Orizari.

May it be celebrated for many years to come.
