Cornish funding to end – petition started in opposition

For more than a hundred years, Cornish (Kernowek or Kernewek) has been undergoing revitalization in the southwest area of England. The movement has resulted in children’s books, films, daycare and other Cornish-oriented institutions.

According to the Cornishman, government funding for revitalization efforts is slated to be terminated. A petition has been started. If 10,000 people sign it, the government will respond, and if 100,000 people sign, the issue will be debated in parliament. Only British citizens and UK residents are eligible to sign the petition.
