Thank you for all the supportive emails. It's clear that feelings run deep on this critical matter, and there is no question that we can create a shift towards renwewed regional autonomy regarding Gaelic, and so much more that pertains to it, here in the islands.
Over the next couple of weeks we'll be organising some online get-togethers for islanders wishing to see a revival of local democracy. We need as many people as possible to become active participants in our campaigns and planned events for the Spring of 2022 and beyond, so please do join us. You'll be among friends.

Guth nan Siarach is a newly constituted grass-roots activism group based on the West Side of Lewis, one of the areas of the Scottish Gaidhealtachd with the highest density of Vernacular (or native) speakers of Gaelic. We are activists on behalf of Gaelic Vernacular speaker rights.
We will raise a number of core issues over the coming weeks with a view to establishing dialogue within our own communities and externally with Comhairle nan Eileanan Siar, Bòrd na Gàidhlig and the Scottish Government.
Sign up as a supporter today to receive our newsletter with articles, campaign links, listings of online seminars and details of how to become a full member or associate member of Guth nan Siarach.
We welcome support and ally-ship from new speakers and Gaelic learners, in Scotland and overseas, as well as those who simply wish to see our Vernacular Speaker communities thrive within our unique island setting.
