The Breton people seem to be pro-active with their language, I've had contacts regarding Brenda Wootton from magazine written in their language, The Breton People, and a radio station, Radio Bro Gwened.

2. (C) Rocard, like former president Valery Giscard d'Estaing (reftel), believes that French history provides the keys for understanding French politics and France's policies. Rocard's point of departure is France's emergence as a nation-state. The history of other European nation-states is that of linguistic communities serving their trade needs. France created itself by destroying five cultures -- Breton, Occitan, Alsatian, Corsican, and Flemish. "We are the only European nation which is the military creation of a non-homogeneous State. This makes France difficult to govern to this day. This explains our difficulty in reforming, our slowness," he [MR] said.

Very interesting! I wonder if the same thinking happens/is happening within the British Isles, being that they were non homogenous?
As long as a hundred of us remain alive, we shall never give in to the domination of the English. We fight not for glory, not for wealth nor honours but only and alone for freedom, which no good man surrenders but with his life...
