Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg

...de la Daily Post:

Four members of a Welsh language protest group have been arrested after painting slogans and sticking posters on stores in North Wales as part of their campaign for a new language act.
Over the last weekend
Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg (Welsh Language Society) targeted branches of Boots and Superdrug in Caernarfon, Porthmadog, Bangor and Llangefni.
Regional organiser Osian Jones and former chairman Steffan Cravo were among the four arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage.
The society has promised further direct action against pharmaceutical giants Boots and Superdrug unless they show greater commitment to the Welsh language...

Does anyone know who were the other two arrested? Every story I can find lists only Jones and Cravo.
