Statement by Giorgio Pagano, Secretary of the "Esperanto" Radical Association.
"It was clear from the start that the policy of enhanced English damages the principle of Second language rights, going against the basic principles of multilinguism that defines
Europe’s linguistic policy," ERA’s Secretary, Giorgio Pagano, explains. "Let’s not forget that this creates a counterbalance, favouring those who have done ONLY English over
those who have done another language as well. Lazio’s TAR (Regional Tribunal Administration) acknowledged the teacher’s Appeal which is to eb "re-examined." This is an
important step to help resist a systematic English-speaking colonization that is happening across the country."
