On 18 April 2015, a Savosian delegation travelled to Brittany to meet with the representatives of the KAD (Kelc’h And Dael, meaning Circle of the Parliament), a Breton entity which aims at recreating a Parliament of Brittany, and sign a union agreement within the Association des Nations de l’Hexagone (Association of Nations of the Hexagon, ANH). This association aims to unite the various peoples of France and work for the recognition of national or ethnic minorities, in accordance with the 1995 Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorites and the Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 18 December 1992. ANH also struggles for these minorities' right to self-determination.
ANH was founded in order to promote cultural and economic links between the regions, and the overall multicultural richness, of France. Among its objectives are the following: promoting the recognition of minority languages, creating symbolic pairings between cities of each region, and promoting regional think tanks.
The presidents of the Savosian and Breton sections of ANH, Fabrice Dugerdil and Stéphane Domagala, have co-signed a mutual union agreement for the obtaining of the status of minority for their peoples, in accordance with the Council of Europe’s Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities.
Meanwhile, ANH has been working on the opening of a music department within the association. ANH President Stéphane Domagala has met with the famous Breton band Manau, which has expressed its support to ANH. ANH is now planning to contact more artists willing to represent their minorities and promote their culture, whether Alsatian, Basque or Savosian, in order to put in place a music festival bringing all these peoples together.
ANH has also opening a sports department, joined by the Ninjutsu Club of Saint Brieuc. The association is now wishes to diversify the sports represented and aims at putting in place a championiship with teams representing their minorities.
