Free 'Moritz' beers for European MPs 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 not official in the European Union although it is spoken by more people than some official languages. In Catalonia, the rule means Catalan-only labels may not be allowed anymore, since the European Union has refused to make Catalan official, despite being the language of more than 9 million people.

This is the letter Mortiz sent to the European Parliament.

The campaign was called: "Drinking a Catalan beer is drinking a European beer"
