FRIULAN COMMUNITY RADIO CELEBRATES ITS FIRST 25 YEARS
Udin 2/10/2005 by Max Mauro
25 years of promoting the language of Friûl (Friuli). This is the story of

the aim to bring the minoritised language on-air. To celebrate this
anniversary, last week the radio started to broadcast a selection of old
radio shows, along with opening a public discussion on the role of
minoritised language community radio in the era of Internet and global
'NO VISION'IN THE TEACHING OF WELSH
Abergele 2/10/2005 by Huw Morgan
One of the pioneers of the teaching of Welsh has said that not enough is
done to help people learn the language. Dr Carl Clowes, one of the founders
and president of the trustees of the language teaching centre at Nant

over the last 30 years and that the present system is piecemeal due to a
lack of funding and planning.

CIVIL ACTION DEMANDS COMPLIANCE WITH GALICIAN LANGUAGE LAW
A Coruña 2/8/2005 by Alexandre Giráldez
A group of Galician language activists have registered 650 individual
appeals at A Coruña's City Council demanding the cancellation of the
Council's decision giving legal recognition to the Spanish name
'La Coruña'. This latest battle, starting last week, is part of
a dispute that for years has challenged the Council to respect Galician
language law: the law recognises the original Galician names of towns as the
only official ones.
ITALIAN PUBLIC TV, RAI, CRITICISED FOR IGNORING LANGUAGE LAW
Udin 2/8/2005 by Max Mauro
RAI, the Italian state broadcasting company, does not respect the law for
the protection of minority languages. The thirteen language communities
recognised by the state, with the exceptions of the German, Slovene and
French minorities, do not get any programmes in their languages. These facts
were aired last weekend in a conference held in Lungro, capital of the
Arbëreshë (Albanian-speaking) community in Calabria.
