Background InformationCymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg (the Welsh Language Society) campaigns for the greater use and recognition of the Welsh language. The Society has in the past been associated with high profile non-violent direct action campaigning, such as the disruption of Prince Charles' investiture as Prince of Wales in 1969. The Society's campaigning has seen significant results, including the establishment of a Welsh-language television channel, and a recent increase in the number of Welsh speakers, as revealed by the 2001 census.
