Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
claims two million native speakers.

If Catalan is not included, either the article has a far different definition of native speaker than is normally meant by the term.

There is in way 2 million native speakers of Occitan (not including Catalan), unless they are counted people who have learned a bit of it in school since it was re-introduced or know a little expressions (which even I know a few).

I think in this case, the wikipedia article is either false or higly misleading and will be looking for a more official source.
