On the 10th of March, The Day of the Szekler Freedom once again tenth of thousands demonstrated for the autonomy of Szeklerland. The participants at the commemoration and the rally covered with blue and gold the monument of the szekler martyrs and the streets of Marosvásárhely/Tg-Mures, proving, that their support for the basic rights of our people is the same. Thanks to all of those, who came from all around Szeklerland, and also to the citizens of Marosvásárhely/Tg-Mures, who were present in great number at our National Day.

However, the solemnity of The Day of the Szekler Freedom was overshadowed by the restrictive behavior of the authorities. We thought, that in a member state of the European Union it is impossible to restrict in such a crass way basic human rights, like the freedom of thought and assembly. It was almost impossible for the crowd to use only the sidewalk on its way to the city center, it is no wonder in this case, that part of it sometimes was forced to walk on the roadway, which led to small incidents. The members of the police and gendarmerie generally did their job in a correct way, let me thank them once again hereby. But we consider unacceptable the way how local and central authorities interfered with prohibition and administrative restriction in the organization of o peaceful and legal demonstration. Dialogue cannot be built on prohibition and restriction, the logical result of such interference is the appearance of those extremists interested in trouble-making. In the name of the organizers of the demonstration we distance ourselves at the same time from the way how the authorities tried to restrict basic human rights, and from those who tried to stir up hostility.

The szeklers are the people of law and democracy, and accordingly we intend to fight for our rights in a constitutional way, by the means of law and democracy. This is the way followed by the Szekler National Council in the last ten years, and that is why tens of thousands of people participating at the solidarity demonstrations all over the world support us. Thanks to them, and we assure everybody, that the szeklers will go on further on this way, the way of law-abiding, fighting for their right in a way complying with order and discipline. But we expect partnership not only from political and civic organizations, but also from the Romanian authorities.

Autonomy for Szeklerland, freedom for the Szekler people!
