Members of Cymdeithas yr Iaith are occupying the Welsh Government offices in Cathays Park Cardiff.
They say that the First Minister’s lack of action following the Census results, which showed a decline in the number of Welsh speakers, is creating a ‘political crisis’.
The protest is part of a general Cymdeithas campaign to put pressure on the Labour Government to act urgently in light of crisis facing the Welsh language.
Cymdeithas yr Iaith members are calling on the Government to adopt six basic policy changes, such as Welsh-medium education for all, fair funding for the language, and a new planning system for the benefit of our communities.
