Skrivu Osian Jones!

…de la BBC:

A member of the Welsh Language Society who refused to pay a fine for painting slogans on shops has been jailed for 28 days by Caernarfon magistrates.

Osian Jones had been ordered to pay more than £1,100 after he painted graffiti on Boots and Superdrug stores in Caernarfon, Bangor and Llangefni.

The chairman of the bench gave Jones, from Dyffryn Nantlle, a chance to pay the fine, but he refused.

About 30 supporters carrying placards accompanied Jones to court.

The chairman of the magistrates, Gareth Haulfryn Williams, said: "We understand your situation, but I will ask you once again if you would consider paying the fine?"

Osian Jones replied: "I am not willing to pay a single penny.

"The situation of the Welsh language in Wales is as vulnerable now as it was 10 years ago when we got devolution."
