Roma community fights Greek social prejudices

In Greek town of Sofades, segregated Roma parents seek to transfer children to mixed elementary schools.

    There are an estimated 10 million Roma people in Europe, many of them live in poverty. They face daily discrimination and segregation because of their background.

    And in Greece, recent unfounded allegations about child abductions have made it even tougher. But there is one community fighting back through education.

    Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from Sofades.
