Minority SafePack, an initiative seeking EU protection for the indigenous minorities in the bloc, has surpassed 1 million signatures, the amount necessary for the European Commission to put the scheme on its agenda.
The initiative was launched by the Federal Union of European Nationalities (FUEN), which made the announcement in Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvár) on Thursday. Minority SafePack calls on the European Union to “undertake legal action” to better protect ethnic minorities within the EU and support a multilingual, multicultural Europe, FUEN said. Although the one million signatures are in place, further ones will be collected until the April 3 midnight deadline to offset potentially invalid signatures, the union said. You can sign it offline in post offices or online here.
