Hungarian PM Office backs demonstration for Szekler autonomy – PHOTOS

The Hungarian Prime Minister’s Office supports a demonstration held on Sunday in Targu Mures (Marosvásárhely), Romania, for the autonomy of the Szeklers, a Hungarian minority in central and western Romania.

In a statement to MTI, Árpád János Potápi, the state secretary for Hungarians abroad, said that autonomy is the best way to ensure the continued existence of ethnic minorities.

The Szekler minority “wants autonomy allowing them to use their mother tongue and national symbols in a way that does not harm majority nationals, nothing more than the rights granted to minorities in many European countries,” he said.

The autonomy of Szekler Land is a cause for all Hungarians, Potápi said.

The demonstration was held on the Day of Szekler Freedom, the anniversary of the execution of Szekler patriots in 1854.
