Breizh's Self-Determination

Join the Breton Democratic Union's call

NANTES/NAONED — The President's words about the Breton identity of Nantes are not without ulterior motives and obviously embarrass socialist leaders, among them the mayor of Nantes.

Yet, those words, coming from the head of state, give a great importance to the Breton unity question, justifying thereby the struggle of all those who have fought for reunification.

At the same time, however, the Balladur Committee works on a reformation of local authorities and a redrawing of administrative boundaries we fear will not answer our demand of a five departments Brittany.

We want an integrally reunified Brittany endowed with the same powers as euro-regions' such as Catalonia, the Basque Country or Scotland.

So I say to my Breton friends, do not settle down for autonomy, you must keep on fighting until you regain your independence and sovereignty. France must renounce to its imperialist past and let go of its European colonies, this is the XXI century, we are supposed to be out of the dark ages, democracy means freedom, peace and justice. The nations captive under France's oppressive rule must come together and show solidarity towards each other; Basques, Bretons, Corsicans, Alsatians... we all deserve to chose our own destiny without the shackles imposed to us by individuals with mentalities that belong in the XV century.
