I'am a romanian and I think you, the Székelys people, that live in Romania for years have right to ask for the cultural autonomy. About the teritorial autonomy...I really don't understand you. If we call that land BLABLA BLA or how you want to name it, do you think that something it will be changed?

Sorin Ilie I partly agree with you, since cultural autonomy is undoubtedly justified for the Székelys. According to the 2011 Romanian census, there are 1.2 million Hungarians in Romania, they constitute 6.5% of the total population, 85% in Harghita, 74% in Covasna, 38% in Mures, and their share is above 23% in Satu Mare, Bihor and Salaj counties. Considering their pure number it is shocking that they do not have any kind of autonomy! A certain economic autonomy is a rightful wish, I don’t...

Sorin Ilie I partly agree with you, since cultural autonomy is undoubtedly justified for the Székelys. According to the 2011 Romanian census, there are 1.2 million Hungarians in Romania, they constitute 6.5% of the total population, 85% in Harghita, 74% in Covasna, 38% in Mures, and their share is above 23% in Satu Mare, Bihor and Salaj counties. Considering their pure number it is shocking that they do not have any kind of autonomy! A certain economic autonomy is a rightful wish, I don’t even ask for complete autonomy, but partial corresponding to their share in a county’s population, and of course without changing the traditional county borders... Why do we need autonomy? Apart from the above mentioned numbers, it is a fact that Romanian authorities discriminate Hungarian dominated areas, they simply distribute less state finance to these regions. Small example, roads and public infrastructure are very good indicators of where state money goes and where it doesn’t go. If you cross the Harghita/Brasov county border, after a while you can feel that the quality of the road is so much different like you’ve entered another country. Székely counties should have autonomy how to use part of the tax revenues paid by the local people and companies up to the level of their population ratio. As for territorial autonomy, I think in the European Union this question is outdated until the rightful cultural and economic autonomy is given to 1,2 million Hungarians in Romania, which is not the case now... The Romanian ethnic minority – like all the other 12 recognized minorities! - living in Hungary has the right for a kind of self-governance supported by Hungarian state money. Lastly, I would like to emphasize that I believe in a peaceful and friendly cooperation between Romanians and Székelys/Hungarians within Romania, because if one community is thriving it can give examples, best practices and impetus for the other, it can give jobs and purchasing power. But as long as they have to fear each other, it serves no good purpose.

Sorin, I suggest you read some history as well, and I'm not refering to the stuff they indoctrinated you with. Can you give me a single example of an archeological site that proves daco-roman continuation beyond the 5'th century? There are hundreds of archeological sites in Transylvania from the 5-12'th centuries, none of them however prove the cultural presence of your suposed ancestors. What does that tell us?

Bosoi Sorin The Székely people were in Transylvania long before most of todays romanians started to invade hungarian territory from Wallachia. The only thing romanians have is the daco-roman theory which is very questionable, if you want to play that game i might as well belive in the Avar-hungarian theory. Hungarians were in pannonia long before any "daco-romanian".

I dont think the really point is who was there first. I guess its about the feeling what Szekely peoples sense in their homeland...they are just tolerated to be there, by other peoples (Romanians). The truth is, both of you call that land home. Just the Szekely's must felt guilt for this? If they get the autonomy, they will know, that everyone recognize their right to be there, and call that land home. Its not a sin, and its not against romanian peoples, or Romania's unity.

Üdvözlet Kati Székelyinek, a kétezredik aláírónak! Jó lenne, ha minden aláíró még meghívná 10-10, megbízható barátját.
Saluton al Kati Székely, la 2000-a subskribinto! Estus bone, se ĉiu subskribinto ankoraŭ invitus po 10 fidindajn geamikojn.

Béres Ferenc László

Por la konserviĝo de la rumania hungararo - dum longa tempo - la aŭtonomio estas nemalhavebla. Ĝis nun mi petis la subskribon de 955 por-esperantaj agantoj. El inter ili 23 homoj jam subskribis la peticion. Dankegon! Mi esperas, ke tiu ĉi proporcio pliboniĝos... Sikulo = Székely estas la nomo de hungaroj vivantaj en Rumanio. Ili vivas tie jam ekde 1100 jaroj... Por konserviĝi kiel hungaroj, ili ŝatus aŭtonomion.

A romániai magyarság megmaradásához - hosszú távon - nélkülözhetetlen az autonómia. Ezért kértem 60 magyar Facebook-barátom aláírását. Eddig kilencen írták alá. Reménykedem, hogy ez az arány javulni fog...

Our respective ethnic historys are in sync with the history of the USA (a family of over 100 ethnic groups). It took over 200 years to bring equality, respect and, unity....the struggle continues. President Obama made it crystal clear on innaguration day; "We are not a black America nor a white America or a latino America but a united Anerica!" It will take time and EFFORT for all of the "familys" of Romania and, the European community to gather around the table and resolve their issues. Indeed, the PEN is more potent than the sword!
