"The Nineteenth century saw a great Springtime of Nations as the revolutions of 1848 saw new countries created the length and breadth of Europe. In our world today we are now seeing our own Spring Awakening with people and cultures that have long been dormant and subdued asserting their right to exist, their right to dream." Adam Price MP
Declare St.David's Day a public holiday. Raise Wales' profile as a nation. A national holiday on St David's Day would be an opportunity through events both national and communal to make Wales presence felt on a world stage. Recognition of our patron saint on March 1st will encourage ex-patriots around the globe to celebrate their origins. Emulate the Irish achievement with St.Patrick's Day. The National Assembly can be a medium for the expression and formation of our national aspirations, and take a major role in campaigning for St,David's Day as a public holiday.
That St. David's Day is declared an official national holiday.
WHO WE NEED TO INFLUENCE
The Assembly has no power to introduce an additional public holiday, instead it will have to lobby the Government through The Secretary of State for Wales, Paul Murphy.
