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? We can say that this is the influnce of Hungary's political view and as well the Székelys leaders from Romania that now they are not anymore a part of government so the problem is that the...

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 As for territorial autonomy, I think in the European Union this question is outdated until the rightful cultural and economic autonomy is given to 1,2 million Hungarians in Romania, which is not the case now...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.

PS: I was very sad to see that the population has decreased to 800K - when I have left the country about 24 years ago it was at least 1.5 mil. Good Luck Guys - my heart goes out for my homeland!

I hereby provide you with the corrected petition.

Szekler Land Autonomy in Romania.
Mr. Ponta, please consider the autonomy of the Hungarian speaking counties (Mures, Harghita, Covasna), in your quest for the regional reform planned in Romania. For too many years this region has been a disputed region because of the Hungarian majority's request for self-determination. We would like to ask you kindly to restore the autonomy that was given even by the communist regime between 1952-1968 and let the people from these 3 counties have a referendum regarding this issue.
Mike Andras, Libertarian Party.
Williamson County, Texas Sheriff Candidate 2012.
Currently, it is populated by 808,739 people, of whom 609,249 (75.33%) are Szeklers and 175,787 (21.73%) are Romanians. We, the Hungarians, having always constituted the vast majority here, are devoted to our centuries old autonomy traditions. The first official reference to the Szekler region’s autonomy dates back to the year 1200 in the written documents. This autonomy was in effect throughout most of our history, but has not been recognized since Transylvania became part of Romania following World War I. The Szekler Land has the right to be acknowledged in the integration process as an autonomous region, its citizens to become the citizens of a united Europe with full and real equality. The autonomy of the Szekler Land does not affect Romania's territorial integrity and national sovereignty. The regional self-governance is in accordance with the principle of self-determination of national communities within a state. We are convinced that the Szekler Land’s autonomy, the recognition of the additional authority serves the protection of the Hungarian national community's life in the self-governing regions. We ask the European Union member countries and the United States Congress members to support the Szekler Land, the Szekler community's efforts for autonomy.

Az autonómia a magyarlakta területeken igen fontos szerepet játszik az egyetemes emberi jogok a demokrácia ideológiájának érvényesített gyakorlata, esetünkben , a szóban forgó területeken az autonóm joggyakorlásának alkalmazása , Az autonóm joggyakorlata Középkelet Európában már alkalmazott gyakorlat, gondolom , hogy ez sem okoz különösebb gondot csatlakozása a demokráciához , Az Egyetemes emberi jogok alapján biztosítani kell minden olyan jogos követelést akik igénylik az autonómia joggyakorlását, Tisztelettel Kökényesi Béla :
