Hola, el mio nome ye Xosé Álvarez y soi representante internacional de l'asociación asturiana Iniciativa pol Asturianu.

La razón d'esti mensax ye doble. Per un lláu, quiero dar a conocer l'asociación a la que pertenezo, la cual trabaya abondo pola defensa y promoción de la llingua asturiana n'Asturies, y per otru lláu facer pública una comunicación que rellaciona direutamente a Iniciativa pol Asturianu con AsturianUS.

En primer llugar, "Iniciativa" ye una organización ensin ánimu d'arriquecimientu que trabaya pa la normalización social y el reconocimientu llegal de la llingua asturiana, llevando a cabu bayura campañes y actividaes, de las que se pueden obtener información al traviés de la nuestra páxina web (www.iniciativapolasturianu.org), disponible n'asturianu, castiellán ya inglés. Tamién tamos en Facebook ("Iniciativa pol Asturianu" ya "Initiative for Asturian - International") y Twitter ("IniciativaAsturianu" ya "Initiative4Asturian").

En segundu llugar, anunciar que tamos trabayando dende'l departamentu d'Internacional na ellaboración d'una rede de contautos internacionales. Esta rede ta compuesta por personaxes y agrupaciones internacionales de relevancia a nivel profesional, artísticu o asociativu. Estos personaxes, qu'ostenten el títulu d'"Embaxadores de la Llingua Asturiana", son consideraos pola asociación como figures internacionales respetables qu'amuesen públicamente el so esmolecimientu y compromisu pol futuru de la llingua asturiana, y sedrán cabezaleros nes campañes de mayor relieve de l'asociación.

Nesti sen, quiero anunciar, per un lláu, que l'alministrador del grupu AsturianUS, Art Zoller Wagner, vien d'aceutar la invitación de la nuestra organización a ser consideráu Embaxador de la Llingua Asturiana. Per otru lláu, quiero tamién espresar equí la voluntá de la mio organización pa que'l grupu d'AsturianUS pueda tamién considerase como asociación Embaxadora de la Llingua Asturiana. Esperamos asina que con esti xestu puedan entamase bayura de collaboraciones ente ambos y potenciase y dar mayor visibilidá a la llingua asturiana a dambos llaos del Atlánticu.

Ensin otru aquel,

Hello, my name is Xosé Álvarez and I am the international representative of the Asturian association Initiative for Asturian.

I am writing this message for two reasons. On one hand, I want to make my organisation known in this organisation, since it is an association which works for the defense and promotion of Asturian in Asturies. On the other hand, I want to make public a communication which directly links Initiative for Asturian with AsturianUS.

Firstly, "Initiative" is a non-profit organisation which works for the social and legal recognition of Asturian language, carrying out a wide range of activities which can be followed through our website (www.iniciativapolasturianu.org, available in Asturian, Spanish and English), on Facebook ("Iniciativa pol Asturianu" and "Initiative for Asturian - International") or on Twitter ("IniciativaAsturianu" and "Initiative4Asturian").

Secondly, I want to annouce that we are working in the International Affairs department to elaborate an International Contacts Network. This Network is made up by remarkable people and organisations outside Asturies in either a profesional, artistic or associative field. This personalities and associations, who are regarded by us as "Amnassadors of Asturian Language", are considered by Initiative for Asturian as remarkable international representatives who publicly show their concern and compromise for the future of Asturian, and they will be visible heads of the most important campaigns our organisation will carry out.

In this respect, I want to announce, on one hand, that the Administrator of AsturianUS, Art Zoller Wagner, has just accepted our invitation to become an Ambassador of Asturian Language. On the other hand, I also want to show our will to invite the group AsturianUS to become also an association regarded as Abmassador of Asturian Language. We hope that with this gesture many future collaborations will be happily made between both of us in order to increase the visibility of Asturian in both sides of the Atlantic.

Sincerely,

I believe that AsturianUS should become an Ambassador of the Asturian Language. I strongly support this effort and have heard good things about the people involved. Also, I've been assured that the group is not allied with any political party.

I've asked the moderators for comments on whether we should take this step. One agreed strongly and one has questioned whether we need to be speakers to be ambassadors (brief answer: no).

Do our members have any strong feelings one way or the other?

----------------------------

Creo que AsturianUS debe hacerse un Embaxador de la Llingua Asturiana. Apoyo firmemente este esfuerzo y he oído cosas buenas acerca de las personas involucradas. Además, me han asegurado que el grupo no está afiliada a ningún partido político.

Le he pedido a los moderadores para sus comentarios sobre si debemos dar este paso. Uno está muy de acuerdo y uno se ha preguntado si tenemos que ser hablantes nativos para ser embajadores (respuesta corta: no).

¿Tienen nuestros miembros algunos sentimientos fuertes de uno lado o el otro?

Yo, Rubén Llames, soi secretariu d'Iniciativa pol Asturianu. Toi tamién a la vuesa disposición pa respuender a les cuestiones que tengais a bien comentar.

Respeutu a lo que dicía Art, ye una asociación apartidista tal puntu que los sos Estatutos prohiben formar parte de la Xunta Direutiva a cualquier que tenga un cargu políticu (tanto partíos como sindicatos).

Tenemos socios que non falen asturianu, nun ye problema nós creyemos que la sobrevivencia de la Llingua ta per encima de conocimientos llingüísticos, sigles polítiques o cuestiones nacionalistes.

L'asturianu ye un bien cultural que ta en pelligru de desapaición y el trabayu de toos pue facer pa evitar que n'unos años temos falando de ún Ned Maddrel de l'asturianu http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ned_Maddrell

Gracies!!!

Yo, Rubén Llames, soy el secretario de Iniciativa pol Asturianu. Estoy también a vuestra disposición para responder a aquellas cuestiones que tengáis.

Respecto a lo que decía Art, IPA es una asociación apartidista hasta el punto de que sus Estatutos prohiben formar parte de la Junta Directiva a cualquiera que tenga un cargo político (tanto en partidos políticos como en sindicatos)

Tenemos socios que no hablan asturiano, no es un problema ya que creemos que la supervivencia del asturiano está por encima de conocimientos linguísticos, siglas políticas o cuestiones nacionalistas.

El asturiano es un bien cultural que está en peligro de desaparición y el trabajo de todos puede hacer que se evite hablar, en unos años, de un Ned Maddrel de la Llingua. http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ned_Maddrell

Gracias!!!

I am the secretary of of the Asturian association Initiative for Asturian. I am also at your disposal to answer those questions you have.

As Art said, Iniciativa for Asturian is a nonpartisan association to the extent that their laws prohibit to join the Direction to anyone with a political office (in both, political parties and trade unions)

We have partners who do not speak Asturian, for us is not an issue because we believe that the survival of Asturian Language is above knowledge of the language, political parties or nationalist issues.

The Asturian Language is an endangered cultural object and all work is welcome to avoid speaking in a few years, of an Asturian Language's Ned Maddrell http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ned_Maddrell

Thank you!

---------------------------
