February 25 - Spanish academics, politicians, writers, historians and journalists from all over Spain, jointly read the Manifesto for the Acknowledgement of the Linguistic Plurality of Spain.

The Manifesto was made available in the seven legally-recognized languages of Spain (Spanish, Basque, Catalan – also known in Valencia as Valencian – Occitan – known as Aranese – Galician, Asturian and Aragonese). It argues that more action at the State level is required to recognize the multilingual nature of the country.

The Manifesto is the result of three working sessions entitled “Interdisciplinary Seminars for Plurilingualism in Spain” held over the past two years (Madrid, September 2014; Barcelona, April 2015; and Valencia, November 2015), which served to gather the most prominent experts from different disciplines – law, sociolinguistics, political sciences, etc. – to lay the foundations for the Manifesto.

The Manifesto is available here.
