Stephen Fry about Esperanto Sep 26, 2011

It was good to see Stephen Fry taking Esperanto seriously on his programme "Planet Word". Unfortunately the representative from the United Nations - who claimed she was an expert on the subject - knew absolutely nothing about the language.

Not only did she not know that Esperanto intends to be an auxiliary language for all but did not know either that the World Esperanto Association enjoys consultative relations with the United Nations and is using that position to defend the rights of all minority languages. Confirmation is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eR7vD9kChBA&feature=related
