The Magyar community in Romania’s first Szekler Land autonomy meeting this year will take place in front of the Monument of the Martyr Szeklers in Targu-Mures on March 10, reports jurnalul.ro, quoting a communiqué by the National Szekler Council (CNS), according to which March 10 will be proclaimed the “Szeklers’ Freedom Day”. “Let’s take to the streets united and aware under the sign of national self-determination. Let’s make March 10 into the memorial day of the Martyr Szeklers, the Szeklers’ Freedom Day, and let’s live with Jokai Mor’s words – ”a national, legal, free and independent state”, reads the communiqué signed by Izsak Balazs, CNS president. Late last week, in his turn, MEP Laszlo Tokes told a press conference in Oradea, that this year, the National Council of Transylvania Magyars (CNMT) and the Transylvania Magyar People’s Party (PPMT) will organize a string of actions aimed at promoting “autonomy and federalism”. “We have proclaimed 2013 as the autonomy year (…). Autonomy part of federalism, starting from its already being in place in Europe and with a view to its being created in the Carpathian Basin as well – could mean our political and national future,” said Tokes. PCM leaders from Covasna and Harghita, too, yesterday expressed their support for the autonomy meeting the CNS will hold in Targu Mures in March of this year. Furthermore, they drew PM Victor Ponta’s attention that the Szekler Land is “unitary, holy and inviolable” and Romania’s administrative reorganization could only be achieved through the creation of the Szekler Land region.
