  • UP THE SOTTISH LANGUAGES

    Hiya, Im new up her. I come from Galiza a stateless nation in the spanish state. I'd like to solidarize with scottish national and cultural strugles.

    "A've wantit an aye want the Galician, tung tae keep on gaun for the survival oor leid is the onlie wey we kin bide as a naition. A've wantit Galician e live on for, apairt frae oor hamelaun itsel - the laun on which we bide an in which oor forefowk sleep - the hamelaun o oor hairts bides in the Galician tung itsel. Ae day A howp ma passin kin be seen as a hymn tae this laun, that A micht saut the yird wi ma banes an on ma heidstane sall be these wards, "Here lies ane whause


    "Se mo mhiann gum mair a' chanan Ghailisianach oir ma mhaireas a' chnan, mairidh ar dthaich. 'S e mo mhiann gum bi Gailisia be, agus chan e a-mhin am fearann fhein, dachaigh ar sinnsearan ach, tha min dchas, dachaigh ar cnain cuideachd. An didh mo bhis, nuair a bhios mi biadhadh an fhearainn seo, chan iarrainn moladh ach gum biodh sgrobhte air mo lic: "Snte an seo tha fear a rinn saothair a chuir mle bliadhna ri saoghal Ghailisia."
    darg mad Galicia lest a thoosan springtimes mair".

    "A've wantit an aye want the Galician, tung tae keep on gaun for the survival oor leid is the onlie wey we kin bide as a naition. A've wantit Galician e live on for, apairt frae oor hamelaun itsel - the laun on which we bide an in which oor forefowk sleep - the hamelaun o oor hairts bides in the Galician tung itsel. Ae day A howp ma passin kin be seen as a hymn tae this laun, that A micht saut the yird wi ma banes an on ma heidstane sall be these wards, "Here lies ane whause darg mad Galicia lest a thoosan springtimes mair".

      Welcome GALICIAN_PATRIOT.

      You are right: a nation which loses its language and culture will not stay a nation for long.
