Langues régionales : le plaidoyer de la Région

#OCCITANIE –Following the call of the collective “So that our languages ​​live”, many citizens gathered today in several towns in Occitanie and France to reiterate their attachment to the defense and teaching of regional languages. Carole Delga, president of the Occitanie Region, took this opportunity to give them her support: " These regional languages ​​are alive and constitute riches for us that must be maintained. A national treasure, nuggets of French heritage as proclaimed by our Constitution in article 75-1. In 2021, thanks to MP Paul Molac, the law of the Republic finally recognized these languages ​​of France and made the generalization of their teaching the norm. In Occitania, we voted in December 2022 for an ambitious plan in favor of Catalan and Occitan and are continuing our action in favor of their preservation and recognition. We are today determined to work with the State to promote the immersive teaching of regional languages, whether in public or voluntary schools. I challenged the President of the Republic in this regard the day after the partial censorship of the Constitutional Council on the Molac Law. Because we know, the immersion teaching method is recognized as effective for learning all languages, as proven by the development of international classes in our high schools. Let’s stop opposing the local to the universal! Occitan and Catalan are two languages ​​of France, two among many others which today underpin the republican universalism that we all cherish. Today is the time to give them the place they deserve."

This project, led by a collective of farmers, storage workers, millers and bakers, will give birth to a baguette, called La Belle Gardoise and which will see the light of day in October 2025. "We're looking forward to this wand…", explains Jean-Pierre Passagas, from the Sauret mill in Hérault, who will make the flour intended for the creation of bread, because there is no longer a mill in Gard today. The first grains of wheat from La Bella Gardoise will only be sown this fall. Already, the bakers of Gard are ready to "make the best baguette in the world".
