To celebrate 50 years of activism to defend the Occitan language, the Institute of Occitan Studies is offering a day in three parts, Saturday May 4, at Ostal del Telh, in Aurillac, in the morning, and in Saint-Simon, the afternoon.

“We are devoting the morning to a time of reunion,” indicates the president of the IEO, Patric Alec. This morning, in Aurillac, is reserved for current and past members. It will be punctuated by a retrospective of fifty years of actions carried out by the IEO in Cantal. They will debate based on the exhibition of photographs carefully collected by Catherine Liethoud based mainly on the archives of La Montagne. “We will discuss what we have succeeded or not, the good times shared or the difficult ones. »
