Esperanto's 124th birthday

July 26 was Esperanto's 124th birthday, which made some news in the anglophone press.

This striking photo, which I don't believe I've seen before, comes from the Northern Ireland press:

Pensioner John Murray expresses his enthusiasm for the language.

You can also listen to a broadcast from the BBC:


'Former home secretary David Blunkett and Bill Chapman, a member of the Esperanto Association, discuss whether Esperanto is a "genuinely useful" language.'
