Roma Gypsies in Paris: Romanian Roma living in difficulty who have come to France looking for a better live, find themselves in a similiar predicament, facing racism from the general populus and systematic controls and evictions from their makeshift squatter camps in the suburbs and temporary places of abode inside Paris.
