Plaid Cymru’s Westminster Leader Liz Saville-Roberts MP and award-winning author Mike Parker will speak at the latest March for Independence in Swansea later this month.

The march on 20 May is the first of the year and follows on from well attended marches in Wrexham and Cardiff last year.

The Cardiff march in October was the biggest so far, with over 10,000 people attending.

Naomi Hughes of YesCymru said: “This is going to be a great march with outstanding speakers in the rally afterwards. The marches are a wonderful opportunity for those of us who have realised that Independence is the key to a better future for Wales and for the children of Wales, to come together and share our passion for our nation and to campaign for the freedom we need. I’m really looking forward to it!”

Hedd Gwynfor of AUOBCymru added: “We’re really looking forward to the independence march in Swansea. It’s an opportunity to show everyone in Wales and beyond that there’s a huge demand for independence across the whole country, north to south, and east to west.

“It’s extremely important that we build on the momentum from the marches last year – so join us in Swansea, and make the most of what’s going to be a fantastic weekend.”

Accessible

The march, which is fully accessible for disabled people, will start at Wind Street Swansea at 1pm and will finish at the National Waterfront Museum Green where a rally will be held with a large stage and screen with speakers and music. Several fringe events will also be held over the weekend as well as the “Indy Market” at the Waterfront from 10am to 4pm.

Kat Watkins, one of the organisers from Swansea said: “As a disabled member of YesAbertawe I felt it was important to get the voices and visibility of disabled people heard and seen.

“Making this march accessible and putting disabled people as the leaders of the march, has ensured that they will most certainly be seen and heard!”

If we in Wales stay quiet, be docile little Taffy’s, will never amount to Nothing as a people & country. That’s what Unionists prefer. Their agenda is suppression of Wales & Welsh culture using Britishness as a facade where in reality their version of Britishness is basically Englishness Saying that. It’s Ironic reality, as the English themselves are not even British., we Cymry are the native British, and were referred as that for centuries by the English until they diverged from their Germanic roots like the pilgrim fathers who settled America did their English by appropriated our ancient identity. So… Read more »

Support the march. The one we had in Glasgow during the Coronation gave me hope that we might still get there after all the self inflicted damage recently. Come on Cymru – burst through – let’s get the ship moving again. We can get our places at the top table Scotland between Saudi and Senegal and Wales sandwiched between Viet Nam and Yemen. The future is nationhood – go for it!

Such a shame that the Swansea march coincides with the Spring fair at LLanelwedd. This is a significant event in the rural calendar and will prevent many Independence supporters from attending the march.

The Spring fair at LLanelwedd is being held on the 20th and 21st May. So it’s possible to attend both if you want to.

I can’t wait to take part in the march on the 20th. The marches are days of hope and offer a window into what Cymru could be in the future. I pity the delusional people who adorned their houses with union flags in the Rhondda Valleys over the coronation weekend. Clinging by their fingernails to the notion that they are seen as equals by those with political power. The reality is that their Britain never cared about them and never will. We in the south Wales valleys are still amongst the poorest in western Europe. The British Welsh in the… Read more »

Remember once you get your independance you lose the £18billion given to us from England, more than we contribute. To make it up every worker would need to pay £15k extra in tax a year. Then any footie fans,? Swansea Cardiff etc out of the League. Playing Brecon Corries and that money would cripple your clubs. That would effect grass roots so fairly soon the national team too. The only people who would do ok are then political entities who are pushing for this. Patriotic about Wales is brilliant but following these for independance is like a Turkey following the… Read more »
