No. You can argue for the tolerance of minority languages but actively
promoting them conflicts with Wikimedia's stated objectives.
Do you edit wikipedia to give "Free Access To All Human Knowledge"
only to the educated elite?
Promoting minority languages certainly does not conflict with
Wikimedia's stated objectives.
But it is *not* one of Wikimedia's stated objectives. Wikimedia
provides a platform where minority languages can develop; it's the
people who can write these languages that do the actual development

them which is not consistent with trying to empower them.
"Getting empowered" is not equal to "learning English".
