The All Under One Banner (AUOB) marches and rallies which galvanised both the Scottish and Welsh independence movements now has its equivalent in Cornwall.

According to a report in Scotland’s The National, AUOB Kernow, the Cornish language name of Cornwall, has recently been established and will shortly announce the details of its first march and rally.

The Cornish independence movement has been growing surely and steadily in recent years as the people of this ancient Celtic nation, once a Brythonic kingdom in its own right, seek the right to determine their own

AUOB Kernow will announce the details of its first march and rally on June 27, known in Cornwall as An Gof Day.

An Gof was a blacksmith, Michael Joseph by name who led the Cornish revolt of 1497 against the then English King Henry VII.

The uprising was because Henry wanted more taxes so he could fight the Scots.

An Gof was executed for his part in the rising.

AUOB Kernow stated: “Marching & Rallying for Kernow – for the people of Cornwall’s right to self determination. Follow us if you support the people of Cornwall’s right to decide.”

The original AUOB said: “The #AUOB phenomenon is spreading, now the people of Kernow want to March & Rally for an Independent Cornwall.

“We are delighted to be working with them.”

Despite the masssive settlement of non-Cornish into the duchy since the war, there is no reason why Cornwall County Council couldn’t be transformed into a Cornish Senedd (or more accurately, Senedh) if… Read more »
