Under a hot tin roof
The encampment where Ioana’s family was living in Barcelona was dismanteled. With no place to go, the family members decide to move to Lille where other members are living camped, although they know that other members have been expelled and they cannot come back to the French State.
Evictions in France continue, generating controversy over the expulsions with frequents claims of various unions in defense of the Roma people.
Living conditions are harder than in Barcelona. Kids remain in the camp the whole day without being schooled, while life passes between begging and scrap. Disregarding any political question, they resist with the aspiration of achieving some kind of welfare payments that seems to never arrive.
