They began at the embassy of the Dominican Republic, calling for answers to the 2009 disappearance of rights activist Juan Almonte. Witnesses say police kidnapped him. Authorities call him a fugitive.
他们先是在多米尼加共和国大使前向2009年权利人士胡安·阿尔蒙特失踪案讨要说法,目击者称警察绑架了他,当局称他为逃犯。

Barbara E. Joe, Amnesty USA's volunteer Caribbean coordinator, said that in more than 20 years with Amnesty, this is not the first Dominican disappearance she has seen.
国际特赦组织美国分会志愿者加勒比协调者芭芭拉·E·乔说在特赦组织工作的20多年来,这并非首次多米尼加人失踪案。

"Where is Juan Almonte? We want to know. His wife wants to know, his children [want to know]. He has six children living in the Dominican Republic. They have a lawyer looking, and it's just a complete blank," said Joe.
“胡安·阿尔蒙特在哪儿?我们想知道。他的妻儿也想知道,他的六个孩子生活在多米尼加共和国,他们的律师也在寻找他,这完全是空白。”

Then it was on to the Romanian Embassy. The issue here: housing, specifically, for the ethnic Roma minority, hundreds of whom have faced forced evictions.
游行者随后来到罗马尼亚大使馆,这里的话题是住房问题,尤其是数百名面临驱逐的吉普赛少数民族。

Eighteen-year-old Belen Medina said no one should suffer such discrimination.
18岁的Belen Medina说谁也不该承受这样的歧视。

"Housing is a fundamental right. And I think that we can also see this, this could be anyone else, this could be another group, and that I don't believe it's okay in this day and age to ignore the plights of any people, no matter what their ethnicity or race is," said Medina.
“住房是基本的权利,我想其他人也会遇到这个问题,其他组织也会遇到这问题,如今这个时代忽略任何人的困境,不管他是哪个民族种族,我觉得都是不对的。”

Next up, the embassy of Sudan, whose president, Omar al-Bashir, faces two arrest warrants from the International Criminal Court for genocide and other crimes in the war-torn Darfur region - charges he denies.
下一站是苏丹大使馆,该国总统奥马尔·巴希尔面临国际刑事法庭的逮捕令,指控的罪名是在战时的达尔富尔地区犯下大屠杀等罪行,他否认了这些指控。
