Roma children dying of lead poisoning

This is one of the most upsetting news stories I’ve seen in a long time, and I’d never heard a thing about this until now. Saw it on ysabetwordsmith’s lj.

From the article: “The UN built camps in Kosovo for homeless Roma gypsies on top of the biggest lead mine in Europe. Every child conceived in these camps will be born with irreversible brain damage.”

Sometimes the world makes me very angry.
