Equally European: Protecting the EU's minorities
Europe is a patchwork of cultures and people. But there's concern here at the European Parliament that the EU's ethnic minorities and minority languages have been somewhat forgotten; getting too little protection in an age of cultural homogenisation. MEPs have just voted a resolution calling for more attention to be thrown on these issues. So what does that mean and which minorities are we talking about? We also bring you a report from Norway on the situation for the Sami people there.
