European Citizens' Initiative - Minority Safepack (B9-0403/2020, B9-0405/2020)

17-12-2020
Written explanations of vote

European Citizens’ Initiative ‘Minority SafePack – one million signatures for diversity in Europe’ is a clear proof of the will of the 1,123,422 European citizens calling on the European Commission to protect EU national minorities from some centralist Member States that discriminate their linguistic minorities.
We have always supported this proposal and we find it very positive for the defense of Catalan language speakers, since it denounces linguistic discrimination and promotes the presence of the language in culture, in the school system, in media and public administrations.
Unfortunately, we abstained in our final vote because we do not find the proposal in the education system ambitious enough, as the only ones who have their fundamental rights threatened by language impositions are members of minorities.
We call on the European Commission to accept this European citizens' initiative and to respect the will of European citizens.
