Moritz to help toast Toni Strubell’s new “What Catalans Want”
The Catalan beer company, Moritz, has graciously offered to bring their popular beer to toast the presentation of Toni Strubell and Lluís Brunet’s new book of interviews of prominent Catalan personalities, “What Catalans Want”, July 21, 2011 at 8pm, at the Institut d’Estudis Catalans (Carrer del Carme, 47, Barcelona).
Moritz has been in the news lately with its campaign to give a beer to each member of the European Parliament to protest its recent vote to maintain the rule that all labeling must be in at least one official EU language. In Catalonia, that means Catalan-only labels may not be allowed, since the EU has refused to make Catalan official, despite being the language of more than 7 million people.
We salute Moritz for its efforts and look forward to drinking that beer!
