  • The leader of Plaid Cymru, Adam Price


    WALES WELSH INDEPENDENCE 'is on the table , says le BBC.jpg

    The leader of Plaid Cymru, Adam Price, has said the general election could signal the start of a movement towards “a new Welsh spirit of independence and optimism”.

    Speaking at the nationalist party’s campaign launch, Price put the idea of Wales breaking away from the UK and remaining in the EU as an independent country front and centre of the Plaid campaign.

    “That pencil we will all hold in a few weeks could be the start not only of a new politics but a new Wales, a new hope for all of us,” he said.

    Plaid’s campaign slogan is “Wales, it’s us”. Price said: “It’s us, the people of Wales, that hold the key to the nation’s future … an independent Wales.

    “Now is the time to focus on the future, not the past. I believe like never before the best days for Wales are ahead of us, and 12 December [election day] can be a day on which we declare a new Welsh spirit of independence and optimism and hope by refusing to put our faith in the Westminster parties and instead voting for a future that we ourselves will shape.

    “This is the election in which Wales will begin to find its voice as a nation. It will start as a whisper, a still, small voice in the darkness, but it will end with a chorus. Speaking with one voice … Now is our time.”

    Plaid’s launch took place, as it did in 2017, in a hotel close to the Menai strait in north Wales. Two years ago, the then leader, Leanne Wood, focused on the idea of defending Wales from the Tories in London and the Labour-led government in Cardiff, with independence sidelined.

    Price took swipes at Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn, complaining Wales was suffering economically and socially because of decisions made in Westminster and Cardiff.

  • Chaque année, plus de 5200 galloisants quittent leur pays


    The crisis in the housing market is “emptying Welsh speaking villages”, language campaigners have warned.

    It is estimated that Wales is losing around 5,200 Welsh speakers a year through out-migration from the country, according to the Welsh language society, Cymdeithas yr Iaith.

    The crisis will be the main topic discussed at a conference in Aberystwyth today.

    In Ynys Môn, Gwynedd, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire over the last decade, 117,000 young people between 15 and 29 have left, which is over 55% of all the out-migration for every age group, the conference will hear.

    In Ceredigion, house prices are more than seven times average wages. Last year, 39% of the homes sold in nearby Gwynedd were either holiday homes or ‘buy to let’ – a rise of 34% from the previous year.

    Councillor Loveday Jenkin from Cornwall Council, architect Màrtainn Mac a’Bhàillidh from a Scottish language group and Heddyr Gregory from Shelter Cymru will be among the speakers in the discussion in Aberystwyth organised by Cymdeithas yr Iaith.

    Speaking ahead of the event, Jeff Smith from Cymdeithas yr Iaith said: “Between a lack of jobs and out-of-reach house prices, towns and villages in the West and North are suffering terribly linguistically and more generallu because so many Welsh speakers have to move away.

    “We really need to get to grips with this so that the language can thrive. We need a property system which ensures that house prices reflect what local people can afford. That’s why we’ve decided that housing, including holiday homes, will be the main focus of the conference today.

    “From their higher education fees policy which encourages people to leave the country, to sustaining and supporting a housing market with totally unaffordable prices for local people, Government policies work against the language and community sustainability more generally.

    “We hope to learn from other countries what we need to do differently. Some policies in Porth Ia (St Ives) in Cornwall offer an answer to the problems, with restrictions on second homes.

    “But, we need to consider other measures in order to bring prices down. One possible answer is to normalise houses as a public service in public hands rather than a private asset.

    “Bringing the right to buy to an end was a step in the right direction, but how do we bring the present private housing stock back into the hands of local communities?”

    L'Écosse emboîte le pas au Pays de Galles pour la promotion de la langue via Iaith Gwaith


    Publié le 15/10/19 0:36, dans Dépêche par Philippe Argouarch pour ABP


    Iaith Gwaith est une campagne lancée au Pays de Galles pour promouvoir le gallois . Elle vise principalement les commerces, les entreprises et les collectivités. Elle consiste à demander aux vendeurs ou autres employés galloisphones de porter un badge signifiant qu'on peut s'adresser à eux en gallois. Les magasins où travaillent des locuteurs du gallois sont aussi priés d'afficher sur leur vitrine une affichette disant «Ici on parle gallois». Même chose dans les entreprises et dans les services publics.

    48983_1.jpgIaith Gwaith c'est quoi ? Deux mots gallois. Les brittophones reconnaîtront le breton yez dans le gallois Iaith, en français : «langage», le même mot en fait en breton et en gallois, mais écrit avec des lettres différentes. Gwaith veut dire «travail», on pourrait traduire Iaith Gwaith, par «la langue au travail».

    Devant le succès de cette campagne, l'Écosse a décidé de lancer une campagne similaire pour la promotion de l'usage du gaélique, la langue celtique que l'on parle encore dans les hautes terres d'Écosse. À quand une campagne similaire en Bretagne pour l'usage de la langue bretonne ? Des badges Komz a ran brezhoneg sont déjà en vente ici

    Aberystwyth has become the third major town in Wales to back Welsh independence after a vote of the Town Council last night.

    The University town, Ceredigion’s largest with a population of 12,000, follows in the footsteps of Caernarfon and Caerphilly, who both voted for independence in July.

    Last week, the Labour-dominated town council of Blaenavon also backed an independent Wales.

    “Huge congratulations to Aberystwyth Town Council for being the latest to support an independent Wales at their meeting tonight,” a spokesperson from YesCymru said.

    Aberystwyth is the second town or community council in Ceredigion to back Welsh independence after Llandysiliogogogo did so in July.

    However, nearby Machynlleth in Powys was the first ever to declare for Welsh independence, on the 28th of May.

    Crymych and Clydach in Pembrokeshire have also backed independence.

    An open-air heritage attraction praised for living, breathing and embodying the culture of Wales has been named the UK’s museum of the year.

    St Fagans National Museum of History last year completed a £30m redevelopment project and was rewarded on Wednesday for showing “exceptional imagination, innovation and achievement”.

    The artist Jeremy Deller announced that the heritage attraction near Cardiff had won the Art Fund museum of the year 2019 award at a ceremony at the Science Museum in London. It comes with a £100,000 prize, the largest art award in Britain.

    Stephen Deuchar, the director of the Art Fund and the chair of judges, said the museum had been transformed by a redevelopment project that had involved the participation of hundreds of thousands of visitors and volunteers.

    One of the 2019 judges, Bridget McConnell, the chief executive of the charity Glasgow Life, praised the devolved Welsh government for being such an enthusiastic supporter of St Fagans.

    “Everyone I met and saw at St Fagans was in constant, lively conversation about their shared history, culture and lived experiences,” she said. “This is their place, and it is strongly felt on every visit.”

    St Fagans has more than 50 buildings that were moved to the site from locations around Wales allowing visitors to take a walk through Welsh history, from prehistoric times to the present day.
