The Welsh Government has responded to protests by Cymdeithas yr Iaith, which also included a large rally in Merthyr Tydfil at the start of January, by saying it will continue to work to 'ensure' the Welsh language thrives, and pointing to its Welsh language strategy published last March.
The strategy recognised the fragile state of the language - and emphasised the need to promote and facilitate its use across all walks of life, with a particular focus on the use of Welsh within the family setting; providing opportunities for children and young people to use Welsh socially; supporting the use of Welsh in communities; the use of Welsh in the workplace and developing the use of Welsh in information technology, including its use with social media.
