Ya, the leaders of UNESCO and the human rights groups, volunteers etc kept saying the importance of language but silence in the use of Esperanto.

UNESCO recomended Esperanto but not accepting Esperanto as the official language in your agency. How to be a leader by example ?

UNESCO can get 9 languages as official languages, what about the 10th for the Esperanto ?

“Language is a central element and expression of identity and of key importance in the preservation of group identity,” the UN Independent Expert on minority issues, Rita Izsák, said as she presented her latest report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

“Language is particularly important to linguistic minority communities seeking to maintain their distinct group and cultural identity, sometimes under conditions of marginalization, exclusion and discrimination.”
