    How would you say to endorse a manifesto??

    The hamburgerologists are worthy of their enemies: the epicures of the international Slow Food Movement, founded at the Opera Comique in Paris 1989, where delegates chose the snail as their emblem, suitable for label pins, and endorsed this manifesto:……

    Los hamburgerólogos son dignos de sus enemigos: las sibaritas del Movimiento de Comida ?Despacio??Lento???, un movimiento internacional fundado en el Opéra Comique en París en 1989, donde delegados escojieron un caracol como su embelema, apto para insignios de solapa, y publicaron este manifesto:

    Publicaron un manifesto?? Any other corrections would be much appreciated too.

    Well, according to the WR dictionary, endorse:

    endorse [ɪn'dɔ:s] verbo transitivo
    1 Fin endosar
    2 (dar el visto bueno a) aprobar
    3 (respaldar) apoyar, abogar por
    4 (hacer publicidad) promocionar

    I'd say: apoyaron este manifiesto o respaldaron este manifiesto, or even promocionaron este manifiesto.
