Protest rally at spending cutbacks.

MORE than 1,000 people are expected to take part in a protest rally in Caernarfon tomorrow.

Organised by Cymdeithas yr Iaith protestors will voice their opposition against spending cuts proposed by the new Tory government.

Osian Jones, Cymdeithas yr Iaith's North Wales organisers, said: "The spending cuts, against S4C amongst others, will harm the Welsh language and have a very damaging effect on our rural communties.

"We hope this rally will be a springboard for community protest.

"It is our intention to start community groups to take radical action against these cuts."

He added one such group has already been established in the Nantlle Valley.

The rally takes place on the Maes, Caernarfon at 11am.

It will be addressed by Arfon MP Hywel Williams and Labour Assembly candiate Gwyneth Thomos, union leaders Silyn Roberts (Unison), David Donovan (BECTU), Mair Tomos (Bangor students and Anwen Davies of the Campaign to protect the Alaw Ward at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor as well as Cymdeithas yr Iaith leaders.
