Save Cornwall - Sign a Petition

Recognition of Cornwall 

as a National Minority

Responsible department: Department for Communities and Local Government
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/libertycentral/2009/sep/08/cornwall-national-minority-race This article in the Guardian newspaper outlines the current position of the Government in respect to the minority status of Cornwall. There has been a policy for hundreds of years, of "sweeping under the carpet" the Cornish Issue. This petition calls for signatures to raise the issue of the "Cornish Identity" in Parliament and aims to have Cornwall recognised as a National Minority..

Good blog post as a Cornishman it is heartening to see support from Wales and hopefully some signatures too. There is also a petition about creating a Cornish assembly http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/3145
Which unfortunately has less signatures at the moment.
diolch!
