Romani residents of the northern Bohemian town of Krupka have come to an agreement with the city council over the recent city ordinance and announced they will cancel the protest planned for 5 September. The ordinance that came into effect on 10 July, prohibits sitting atop of walls, and using chairs, grills and cookers on public property in some parts of the city – specifically in the Horní Maršov neighborhood that is inhabited by mostly socially excluded residents. The city council promised to place benches in the neighborhood, while residents agreed to respect the ordinance, town hall spokesman said on Tuesday.
