Gypsies expelled by French authorities in Romania plan to return, lacking any economic perspectives in their country, El Pais daily comments on Tuesday. The 700 gypsis repatriated in France this summer returned to their homes and relatives, most of them coming from rural areas. They plan to return, unnoticed in France after authorities chill, local NGO representatives declared, quoted by te Spanish daily.

For gypsies, life in France, Spain or Italy is tough but even so, it is better than in Romania where the aversion against them is a regular, Spanish journalists comment.

The protest against the French authorities' decision to exel gypsies gathered a little over 100 protesters in front of the French Embassy to Bucharest. Surveys reveal that over a third of Romanians consider that the repatriation of gypsies presents a danger for their families.
