An short article from yesterdays Daily Post, a reminder of the fight for the Welsh language.
Makes me very aware of how little I did. He was 9 years younger than me and did so much more! I was living in England and English speaking Gower, with only brief forays to Gwynedd, while he get a degree in prison and suffered for yr hen iaith!
It’s quite humbling to see people prepared to go to prison in the cause of rights to use their own language as equally as another one.
My gran’s generation were force fed in prison when trying to get the vote! A lot of mine marched - Aldermaston, Treweryn, S4C, Greenham Common, Iraq War…to name but a few. Arrests of striking miners… People care and some are willing to undergo personal physical pain to try to bring change.
Thanks for sharing, Rich!
