The future of several homeless members of the Roma community, mostly from Bulgaria, remains uncertain as officials decide whether to evict those who have taken up residence over the past two years in the decayed structure. Citizens of Romania and Bulgaria, countries which joined the European Union in 2007, will be granted full access to European job markets next year, which some critics fear may bring about 'welfare tourism,' seeing squats such as those in the Eisfabrik as a warning of what will come if the immigration is unregulated.
