Free beers to MEPs to defend the Catalan language labels
The Catalan company Moritz has given a bottle of beer to each member of the European Parliament. The reason is to protest the recent EP's vote to maintain the rule that all labeling must be in at least one official EU language. Catalan is no official in the European Union besides it is spoken by more people than some official languages. In Catalonia, the rule means Catalan-only labels may not be allowed, since the European Union has refused to make Catalan official, despite being the language of more than 7 million people.
