The Cornish Fighting Fund website states...

"The purpose of the fund is to pay much of the costs involved in pursuing a legal action against the UK Government. The action is necessary after government’s constant, dogmatic and wholly irrational, refusal to include the Cornish within an international treaty designed to, among other things, introduce educational pluralism in their traditional homeland and thus bring to an end the forced assimilation of the Cornish people..."

Cornish Fighting Fund - One man and his followers to battle a government
by CelticTruth | September 6, 2008 at 08:02 am | 107 views | 2 comments


In a scenario resembling the Biblical account of David and Goliath, enigmatic Cornish activist, researcher, historian and author, John Angarrack, who enjoys cult status in the Duchy, is now, once again, preparing to lead a legal challenge to the UK government's failure to recognise the indigeneous Cornish people as a national minority of Great Britain.

In denying the Cornish this right and their inclusion in the Council of Europe Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, the Westminster Government are flying directly in the face not only of public opinion in the Duchy, but also against the recommendations of the Cornwall Council, the Campaign for Racial Equality and the Council of Europe itself.

The right to be regarded as a National Minority has been accorded to Irish Travellers, Ulster Scots and many other groups. Thus far, the Cornish have been refused and the Westminster Government have thrown massive resources to block their attempts.

The Cornish people seek nothing more or nothing less than the same rights accorded to these people as well as to the Scots, the Welsh and the Irish, to name but a few.

There is now a groundswell of support for the proper teaching of Cornish issues in Cornish schools following pupils being expelled for declaring themselves Cornish and asking to know more of their own history, language and culture which has been hidden from successive generations down the years.

The feeling amongst many activists is that the real force behind the effort to secure proper recognition for the Cornish who are not English, their ancient Celtic language, their unique and distinctive non English history and their culture is in fact Prince Charles, who wields enormous power and influence in his Duchy. Charles retains to legal right to interfere with any proceedings in any Court, or indeed anywhere else, which may affect his considerable income derived from Cornwall. Media interference has occurred and court hearings manipulated.

Mr. Angarrack has made a previous attempt to challenge the Westminster Government and the matter progressed to the High Court. There, the government employed the best lawyers and eventually, Angarrack and the Cornish conceded defeat as they quite simply ran out of funds.

Cornish mistrust of the Duke has now spread to the Isles of Scilly where home owning islanders have begun to feel the force of Duke Charles and who are also mounting a challenge to him there over the issue of housing.

Angarrack, concurrent with the launch of his latest book 'Scat t' Larrups' which revealed the police and authoritarian state extant in the Duchy, has commissioned two websites recently.

The first reveals the true side of Duke Charles and his Cornish Duchy and the second now appeals to the public for pledges of cash to fund a second legal challenge to the Westminster (and perhaps Duke Charles) Government. With a target of £100,000, remarkably, the sum of £21,275 (as at 6th Sept. 2008) has already been pledged within a few weeks. This is astonishing bearing in mind that Cornwall has been assessed as one of the poorest areas within Europe let alone Britain with the majority of the population earning the minimum wage or less in the case of the 'black' tourist industry with its history of appalling working conditions and legal rights.

Celtic League appeal for support for An garrack's Cornish Fighting Fund

The Secretary of the Cornish Branch of the Celtic League ( An Kesunyans Keltek - Scoren Kernewek ) has joined in growing calls for wide support of John Angarrack's 'Cornish Fighting Fund '.

Mr. Angarrack ( 'The Rock ' ), author and historical researcher as well as being a political activist hailed by many as a ' King Arthur ' like figure and who enjoys a massive following in the Duchy, has stated his intention to legally challenge the over centralised and much despised Westminster Government to the ultimate court over their refusal to recognise the Celtic Cornish people and to accord them equal status to the many other National groups.

Businessman, Per Iwan Le Moine, a Breton but now resident and working in Cornwall, comments:

"If you are too busy to get involved in the many existing Cornish movements, or too involved in your own, but still would like to help, just visit:

http://www.cornishfightingfund.org/index.php

and make a pledge to help bring proper Cornish history and culture to future generations of Cornish school children.

This one action brought by Cornwall 2000 against the state and Duchy would free Cornwall from the ritual rubbish fed to our children in schools today.

However, they need a safety net and this fighting fund is it; the governments has got got its own safety net when mocking and humiliating the Cornish in court - it's called tax payers' money.

Any monies pledged may or may not be used. Should the latter is the case, then any funds pledged and given would be returned to you. "

Mr. Le Moine, a founder member of the ' Cornish Solidarity ' mass protest movement some years ago, has closely supported John Angarrack and the Cornwall 2000 Human Rights Organisation down the years appeals to Cornish people not only at home but overseas to join in this legal action being mounted against the Westminster Government and probably Charles Windsor, Duke of Cornwall and being a fellow Celt, extends his appeal to Celts everywhere.

CELTIC LEAGUE - PRESS INFORMATION

CORNISH FIGHTING FUND


Cornish activist and Director of campaign group Cornwall 2000, John
Angarrack, has launched a new website calling for supporters to help
him to take the UK Government to court, over their refusal to officially
recognise the Cornish as a distinct ethnic group in the British Isles.

The website, appropriately titled 'Cornish Fighting Fund', was launched
to coincide with Mr Angarrack's book 'Scat t'Larrups?' which was published
earlier this year and aims, according to the website, to raise money
"to pay much of the costs involved in pursuing a legal action against
the UK Government."

The idea is for visitors to the site to pledge money to the cause
by stating contact details, but no funds will be requested at this
point. The target amount that Angarrack is looking to achieve is £100
000 by the end of the year and so far the figure stands at £24 145
at the time of writing.

The Secretary of the Cornish Branch of the Celtic League (An Kesunyans
Keltek - Scoren Kernewek), Per Iwan Le Moine, said:

"If you are too busy to get involved in the many existing Cornish
movements, or too involved in our own, but still would like to help,
just visit http://www.cornishfightingfund.org/index.php and make a
pledge to help bring proper Cornish history to future generations
of Cornish school children...This one action brought by Cornwall 2000
against the state/crown would free Cornwall from the ritual rubbish
fed to our children in schools today.

However, they need a safety net and this fighting fund is it; the
Government's got its own safety net when mocking and humiliating the
Cornish in court; it's called tax payers' money... Any monies pledged
may or may not be used; if the latter is the case, then any funds
pledged and given would be returned to you."

The Cornish, like the Bretons, are the only Celtic group that is not
officially recognised by their respective state Governments. In the
past, the UK Government has argued that this is because the Cornish
are not a recognised group under the Race Relations Act; that a case
has not been successfully brought to court by a person or person(s)
claiming to be Cornish.

Mr Angarrack claims however that the Government's argument is wrong
and other ethnic groups have been recognised by the UK Government
in the past, without them having to go to court under the Race Relations
Act.

 Random Information. 
 1997 was the 500th anniversary of the An Gof uprising and a commemorative march (Keskerdh Kernow 500) was held, which retraced the route of the original march from St Keverne, Cornwall via Guildford to London. A statue depicting An Gof and Flamank was unveiled at An Gof's home town of St. Keverne and a commemorative plaque was also unveiled at Blackheath.
