Starting point and route revealed as Welsh independence march returns to Cardiff
The starting point and route for next month’s Welsh independence march which will return to Cardiff have been revealed.
AUOB Cymru say the march will start promptly at 12pm on 1 October at Windsor Place, Cardiff.
The march will travel along Queen Street, St John Street, Working Street, The Hayes, Mill Lane, St Mary’s Street, High St and Duke Street before returning to Windsor Place via Queen Street.
All those planning to attend are encouraged to meet from 10.30am and to bring flags, whistles, drums and instruments, the organisers said.
Following the march a rally will be held – also in Windsor Place – with speakers and music and as in Wrexham it will be possible to see everything that happens on a giant stage and a big screen.
Organisers have also asked independence supporters to help fundraise towards the cost of hosting the event.
“Hosting an event on this scale is extremely costly,” they said. “We are very grateful to YesCymru for their significant financial contribution, but in order to enable us to advertise the event as widely as possible we have to raise thousands of pounds before 1 October.”
It will be the first march since Wrexham in July, which was itself the first in three years due to the Covid pandemic.
It will also be a return to the site of the first ever Welsh independence march in Cardiff on 11 May 2019, which attracted a crowd of around 6,000 participants.

Out of all the nations of Britain it’s Wales who should be screaming Tory blue murder from the rooftops at our ongoing injustice at the hands of Whitehall. The Scottish independence movement is where it is now because Scots reached their tipping point. Where we in Wales in comparison have endured unimaginable trauma at the hands of the English)British state but rarely fought back as if we were in a political & cultural stupor all these painful years? So we have two options. We can either lay down, do nothing and be forever slaves, or stand up and fight for… Read more »
Perhap we need a catch slogan. “Let’s Take back control” might do it. After all the English Facists know what that means so will know immediately what we are seeking.
I agree we need to get up off our knees and take ownership of our future.
Cardiff 2 Swansea 0.
Maybe you dont know or dont speak to indy supporters in Swansea Dai – as none of us here see things that way. For the record a Yes Cymru welsh indy march was planned to take place in Swansea two years ago this month but like so many events that year it fell victim to the pandemic.
Now more than ever we need to show we are serious about gaining our independence. In Wales for the last 100 years in UK general elections we have elected a majority of MPs who represent Labour or Plaid – left of centre parties. We have never elected a majority of Conservative MPs (nor are we likely to). Independence would help create a nation state where the right-wing extremism of the Conservative party would not play a role in our government.
The independence marches are days of hope.
