– Robin Farrar, Chair of Cymdeithas
We very much hope the First Minister will respond positively to our recommendations to increase the number of Welsh speakers and Welsh language communities. We will be calling on him to acknowledge the crisis which faces the language and implement the recommendations in our "Maniffesto Byw". There's no point sitting back and accepting the Census results; with positive campaigning and political will, we can change our fate and that of our Welsh language communities
The adverts will appear in the Western Mail , the Daily Post and Golwyg 360
