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.

Election of new National Governing Body for YesCymru.  

On the 1st of February the names were announced of the members elected to the new NGB, and  the 15 board members have now started at their posts. The elected members represent 6 regions  (5 from Wales and 1 region representing members from outside Wales). 

North of Wales Region - Elfed Williams, Elgan Owen and Vaughan Williams

Mid and West Wales - Ifor ap Dafydd, Gaynor Jones and Geraint Thomas 

South Wales West - Christine Moore and Nerys Jenkins 

South Wales Central - George Gethin Hudson, Andrew Murphy and Richard Huw Morgan

South Wales East - Mihangel Ap-Williams and Phyl Griffiths 

Outside of Wales - Barry Parkin and Louise Aikman 

The process of incorporating YesCymru as a Company Limited by Guarantee is complete. The  NGB held their first meeting with Azets on 2nd February, further meetings are scheduled over the  coming weeks to ensure the hand over of administration from the interim management to the NGB  is carried out smoothly and efficiently.

This is the beginning of a new and exciting period for YesCymru, and in the coming weeks,  YesCymru will look to build further on the success of the past few years, leading the way in our  campaign for independence for Wales.

    Statement: We will not tolerate intolerance

    We on the Central Committee have been made aware of online behaviour that needed immediate action. As a result, we have reported these instances to the police and to the relevant online platforms while we investigate further.

    In each case, if the accounts concerned are found to be members, then we will suspend their membership whilst the investigation takes place.

    Following our amazing growth and successes over the last 18 months, we would like to make our members aware of a number of voices falsely claiming to support YesCymru and some falsely implying or claiming membership. Some of these may even say they are part of the wider independence movement.

    We as the CC, as members, and as active groups should make every effort to discount these false voices whose intentions towards our movement are disingenuous and destructive.

    We ask that each of us make every effort to question and validate information which is circulating and which we might receive second hand. This is a democratic campaign and democracy thrives in the light - please always be sure to confirm online information.

    Our movement is for all the people of Cymru. YourCymru YesCymru. We will not tolerate intolerance.
