Aberystwyth town council votes to back Welsh independence
Aberystwyth has become the third major town in Wales to back Welsh independence after a vote of the Town Council last night.
The University town, Ceredigion’s largest with a population of 12,000, follows in the footsteps of Caernarfon and Caerphilly, who both voted for independence in July.
Last week, the Labour-dominated town council of Blaenavon also backed an independent Wales.
“Huge congratulations to Aberystwyth Town Council for being the latest to support an independent Wales at their meeting tonight,” a spokesperson from YesCymru said.
Aberystwyth is the second town or community council in Ceredigion to back Welsh independence after Llandysiliogogogo did so in July.
However, nearby Machynlleth in Powys was the first ever to declare for Welsh independence, on the 28th of May.
Crymych and Clydach in Pembrokeshire have also backed independence.
