Does anyone know if there are any Cornish political links with the Welsh and Breton independence movements ? Also does the Cornish Nationalist Party (which I believe split from Mebyon Kernow around 1975) still exist as you don't hear much of them these days ?

i'm about finding this forum a few hours ago. I 'm living in Britanny.(breton speaker and nationalist minded), i' m interested in Cornwal, i' would like to travel with my girlfriend to Kernow during the summer. Do you think that one of you could give me news about political or cultural in cornwal during the summer ? gael@roblin2004.org
I'm thinking about learn cornish (i can manage to do this in britanny), do you know if their is a kind of "summer scholl" in Cornish ? (for the next months or year)

Thank you ...

Salute gael

Desolait, je parle pas les langue Cornique ou Breton mais je parle un peut le Francais.

Je habite a Paris depuis mars 2004 dans onzieme pres du Pere Lachaise cemitiere, c'est chouette non, il y a Oscare Wilde et Jim Morrison dedans.

J'ai beaucoup de chose a fair en ce moment, je fait un cour pour devenir prof de Anglais et c'est dure, je boss com un malade mais je cherche un ecole à Paris qui donne des cour de langue Breton.

Est-ce que vous connaissez une bonne ecole à Paris, est-ce que vous pourriez me donnez l'address sil vous plait.

Je crois que le "Links" page ce serais un bonne commencement pour vous.

je suis sur qu'il y a des cours à ti ar vretoned (la maison des bretons) qui doit se trouver à la "mission bretonne" rue delambre dans le 14eme. (je vais vérifier)...sinon tu peux taper "skol ober" sur google c'est des cours de breton (et de cornique !) par correspondance cela fonctionne trés bien. Si tu as un problème recontacte moi. Je t'aiderais avec plaisir.merci de ton aide ! with my best interceltics greetings !

For the others, i'm personnaly involved in the nationalist movement (Emgann the left wing pro independence party) i think (sur) that MK has regular relationships with the UDB. Plaid and MK sound more nationalist than UDB...

CELTIC LEAGUE - PRESS INFORMATIOn

DEMONSTRATION REMINDS BRETONS OF FREEDOM STRUGGLE


A demonstration and commemoration were held in Gwengamp, Brittany
at the weekend to remember some of those who have died in the Breton
freedom struggle over the years and also to remind Bretons of the
ongoing court case and repression of Breton nationalists today.

The meeting was co-operatively organised by CARB (the Breton prisoners
solidarity group) and Nationalist Organisation, Emgann-MGI.

As is generally the case with such events the demonstration was attended
by the media and also attracted the usual intimidatory scrutiny of
the French Police.

However the demonstrators were not deterred and a wreath to commemorate
fallen Breton comrades such as Kristian ar Bihan, Yann-Kel Kernaleguen
and Jean Groix was laid. The wreath laying was followed by a patriotic
rendering of "Kan Bale An ARB".

Bretons were urged to continue to give practical financial support
to the Breton prisoners group, Skoazell Vreizh.

Those outside Brittany in the other Celtic countries who are sympathetic
to the plight of the Breton prisoners can also contribute messages
of solidarity and financial support. Details of how to contact Skoazell
Vreizh are on their web-site.
