Rally for the Cantonese language

There were rallies in Guangzhou and Hong Kong in favour of the Cantonese language recently. I have long felt that more should be done to elevate the status of Cantonese and other regional languages in China. There are at least 70 million speakers of Cantonese.

When we look at how regional languages were suppressed in France and other European countries, and the present day efforts to maintain and strengthen languages like Catalan, Euskara, Welsh and Irish, and even Breton and the languages of Southern France, there is good reason to support this campaign in favour of Cantonese.
