Book Launch: Pata

with Adi Dohotaru

Al. Lăpușneanu St. 7-9

Saturday, the 8th of October we invite you to the Pata book Launch, a publication about the activism related to the Pata Rât ghetto from Cluj, alongside with one of its editors, Adi Dohotaru.

The book mirrors the different civic trans-ethnics initiatives for human rights and social justice. These initiatives are aiming towards the implementation of the de-ghettoization process as well as towards enforcing local and central policies that would allow ensuring the locative rights of all citizens, particularly of marginalised categories.
