EU support for the Romanian Bill on National Minorities
Kolozsvar - Cluj - Klausenburg, 30/11/2005 by Aron Ballo 
http://www.eurolang.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2532&Itemid=1

The European Union has urged Romania to adopt the Bill on the statute of
national minorities as a condition of Romania’s EU entry. The Romanian
Government promised this would happen before January and representatives
of Romania’s largest ethnic minority, the Hungarians, expect this no
later than March. Meanwhile, the Romanian opposition, as well as voices
within the ruling coalition, are opposed to the legislation as well as
wanting to exclude cultural autonomy from it.

Le Parlement catalan a approuve, il y a peu, un nouveau statut qui ouvre
des perspectives tres interessantes pour la langue occitane. La France,
loin de s'ouvrir a la diversite culturelle et linguistique a l'interieur
de ses frontieres, continue a ne pas vouloir donner une reconnaissance
officielle aux langues historiques de son territoire et les minorise
chaque jour un peu plus.

«Les conversations dans les differents patois (alsacien, breton,
provencal...) sont admises dans les salons geographiques adequats et
laissees a l'appreciation des @ [moderateurs NDLR]: il ne faut pas que
ce parler noie le salon au detriment de la langue comprise des
francophones: le francais classique ».  C'est ce que stipulent les
conditions d'utilisations du forum de discussion de wanadoo.fr. Et ces
recommandations figurent dans le chapitre concernant l'interdiction des
paroles racistes, sexistes et titrees « Je suis respectueux de la
dignite humaine et de la parole d'autrui».
