Another day, another reason to be ashamed of the government we are under.
The Minister of the Interior (who is de facto the most powerful person in the country) called for the registration of all the Roma people in the country.

If any of you is an #iCheckMovies user, be aware that it's time to vote for the new official movie lists: https://www.icheckmovies.com/blog/polls+for+new+official+lists/
Two of the candidates have been added to the site by yours truly, but they're not my favourite ones – I'm rooting for the ones about Black and female directors, which would be a much needed addition to the official roster.
