de Brún attends Basque language event
Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún today attended an important Basque language event in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
The event organised by the Intergroup for Traditional National Minorities and Minority Languages and entitled the "Basque Country Nowadays" dealt with many other issues besides the language of Euskadi including culture, media and cooperativism.
From Strasbourg Ms de Brún commented "I congratulate the Intergroup for Traditional National Minorities and Minority Languages for once again seeing beyond the idea of Europe as consisting purely of states rather than nations. The Basque country deserves its equal place among the nations of Europe which is why I was so glad to attend today's event." Críoch
