GOVT OFFICIAL: SZEKLER LEADERS CAN COUNT ON HUNGARY'S SUPPORT IN STRUGGLE FOR AUTONOMY

 

If the Szekler people and their leaders commit themselves in full to a fight for autonomy, they can count on the Hungarian government’s support, the state secretary for Hungarians across the border said in Siculeni (Madéfalva), in central Romania. Marking the Day of Szekler Autonomy, observed on the last Sunday of October, Árpád János Potápi said that unlike in 1956, the fight for freedom today had to be waged with petitions, rather than weapons. The state secretary urged those in attendance to gather as many people as they could to sign the European citizens’ initiative on protecting national regions launched by the Szekler National Council.
