Ethnic and Religious Clashes

Ethnic and Religious Clashes

The largest clash occurred in the city of Andrychów, which had already seen smaller clashes between the locals and Roma in November 2013.

This was repeated in 2014. On June 6, 2014, six teenagers (aged 15-16) attacked two Roma women and provoked a clash in the city. Roma retaliated by assaulting two young locals and on June 9 nationalists were raiding Roma houses . On June 19, nationalists and football fans intended to hold an anti-Roma demonstration in Andrychow, organising it via Facebook . On July 30, it was reported that anti-Roma tensions continue in Andrychów. At one of the meetings, extreme right movement leaders threatened to evict Roma from the town.

In 2015, ethnic clashes were not fixed.
