Our aim is to gain independence for Wales, in order to improve the way our country is governed. We believe in an inclusive citizenship, which embraces and celebrates the fact that everyone who chooses to make Wales their home – regardless of their background – are full citizens of the new Wales.

Our group will promote independence for Wales through a range of activities, to make the case that Wales, like so many other nations throughout the world, would be better running its own affairs, as part of a wider European and international family. Our organisation is open to all who believe in independence for Wales.

    Looking to the Future

    There hasn't ever been a time (at least not since 1406!) when the dream of an independent Wales has seemed so tangible. The last year or so has seen an idea take hold that we can do this. We can stand on our own two feet and make a better go of it than what we are presently allowed, always at the mercy of decisions made far away from Wales, for the benefit of others or just forgotten about and ignored. For many people, YesCymru became a beacon of light, an organisation that crossed party political affiliations and encouraged a united approach. 

    Our movement encouraged many people who hadn't any history of political engagement to get involved and get active. For some that was becoming a member, or forming a branch at home or in work. Some of us decided to stand for the committee so that we could play a part in this historic process. 

    Our aim is to focus on developing grassroots activism, getting back out and speaking to communities, and organising by being a visible presence up and down our country. The achievement of the newspaper drop reminds us to continue to foster and grow that spirit of community activism.

    People are really excited by Wales’ potential and are becoming engaged in being part of the future of Wales. So, it's only natural that everyone wants to bring their own thoughts and ideas forward about what they think that should look like and how they think we should get there.

    We at the CC are talking to members and branches and doing our best to put measures into place that can ensure that members will have a chance to mould the shape of the movement. 

    The committee are volunteers and give their time and skills for free, with a shared aim of an independent Wales. Not everyone will agree with each other and we're trying to change the way we do things and bring the membership and CC together. But please, no one, committee member or wider membership should have to put up with abuse, innuendo, smears and personal attacks. There is a real sense of excitement and enthusiasm and members are impatient for the movement to move forwards, but it's important that we get it right.

    We all want to ensure that YesCymru is open, fair, inclusive, and representative where we can have a constructive debate about the shape of a future Wales.

    Our Response 15/7/2021

    This morning YesCymru's attention was drawn to a cartoon attacking a member of CC by a former service provider and member of YesCymru. We believe that this illustration repeats anti-semitic tropes and is designed to cause hurt to the CC member.

    While YesCymru encourages debate and discussion amongst its members, supporters and the wider community, we cannot tolerate bullying, harassment or anti semitism and need to take action by suspending the member with immediate effect and withdrawing his work from our welcome pack while pending investigation.

    Anti Harassment Statment

    YesCymru has been made aware of the targeted harassment of YesCymru central committee members and YesCymru staff, we as an organisation will not tolerate harassment or abuse directed at committee members and staff. 

    YesCymru has a duty of care, and responsibility for the wellbeing of our central committee members and staff, which we take very seriously. 

    YesCymru staff are employed to act on behalf of the elected central committee, staff do not make the democratic decisions, the central committee does. Therefore if a member wants to raise an issue or suggestion regarding the organisation, we advise them to do so via the correct channels, their elected committee members. 

    YesCymru committee members are elected to act on behalf of the members, and it is democratically correct and fair for members to ask them questions, and raise ideas. YesCymru has set up suitable avenues to do so, for more information see the ‘Get Involved’ section of the YesCymru website. Eg; we will soon be launching our first all-member online cafe, which any member can attend! We ask that all members use the relevant and appropriate channels to contact cc members. 

    YesCymru is one of Wales’ largest political organisations, and fastest growing political movements in the UK! We, as an organisation, recognise there will always be bad faith actors, and non YesCymru supporters attempting to undermine the organisation. As such, we ask that paid-up members use suitable channels and processes to contact central committee members, so we can suitably respond to your ideas and questions.
