Direct action for Breton

Posted: August 1, 2014 in breton, brittany, direct action
Ai’ta! is a group whose primary objective is to defend and promote the Breton language, and ensure that it remains a living language in all areas of society. To achieve this it is vital that everybody be allowed to see, hear and speak Breton in public life… A language which cannot be used in day-to-day life is a language condemned to die. For this reason we demand that Breton, along with those who speak it, be respected everywhere in Brittany. To this end it is indispensable that our language be given official recognition.

Whilst waiting for that inevitable step on the road to the re-appropriation of the Breton language by the Breton people, the group lacks no imagination and organises numerous actions to inform the largest number of people, and develop the space given to Breton in society. However, and this is vitally important, our actions are always guided by a sense of humour and playful spiritthat in noway stop us from respecting or helping public service users. Indeed, Ai‘ta ! has chosen non-violent direct action as a means of expression to ensure that we are heard.
