Lusatian Sorbs are the smallest Slavonic ethnic group. They live in Lusatia which is part of the German states of Saxony and Brandenburg. The Lusatian Sorbs engage in political activities at local, regional, state and national levels. In 2005, The Sorbian National Party (in Lower Sorbian language: Serbska ludowa strona, SLS) was founded, and in 2010 its name was changed to the Lusatian Alliance (in Lower Sorbian language: Lužyska alianca, LA). The Party's leader is Hannes Kell. The organisation is both a national minority and a regional party. The Party's program includes an introduction of the equal status of both German and Lusatian languages within Sorbian territory, promotion of Lusatian language in Lusatia, obtaining political autonomy for Lusatian Sorbs, as well as aiming at the reduction and eventual cessation of open pit lignite mining which damages the environment and destroys the region's villages. The Lusatian Alliance desires to hold a democratic election and appoint Sorbo-Lusatian authorities that have a budget at their disposal to financially manage and oversee Sorbo-Lusatian education.
