Next March for Independence will be held in Carmarthen

YesCymru and All Under One Banner Cymru (AUOBCymru) are excited to announce that the next March for Independence will be held in the historic town of Carmarthen on Saturday, June 22nd.

This will be the first march held in the old county of Dyfed, in the south-west and builds on the momentum from previous marches held across Wales since 2019, including Caernarfon, Merthyr, Wrexham, Bangor, Swansea and twice in Cardiff, where thousands have marched for an independent Wales. 

Supporters are invited to gather at Carmarthen Park from 11am, with the march starting at 1pm. Marchers are encouraged to bring flags, banners, whistles, drums, and, above all, their family and friends.

Speaking on behalf of YesCymru, Gaynor Jones from Carmarthenshire said:

Carmarthen and the county has played a prominent part in Welsh history from the time of the Black Book to electing radical MPs who wanted to challenge and improve the democratic process. An independent minded town is the ideal location for the next Independence march. The current constitutional set-up is making us poorer, and is obviously not working and we welcome all who want a better, independent Wales or want to know more to walk with us on 22nd June.

Hedd Gwynfor, a resident of Carmarthen and speaking on behalf of AUOBCymru added:

The upcoming March for Independence in Carmarthen promises to be a powerful demonstration of the determination of the people of Wales to join the global family of independent nations. AUOBCymru wants a better Wales for all, and that's why we're fighting for independence. Join us in Carmarthen on the 22nd of June; all under one banner.

Dylan Phillips, Chair of YesCymru in Carmarthen said:

The spirit of freedom is woven like a silver thread through the history of the south west. Think of Gwenllïan and the Rebecca Riots. It will be a privilege to see the next march for Welsh independence held in Carmarthen and we welcome everyone from all over Wales. Join us on 22 June in the town of the legendary Merlin and Gwynfor's victory, not to look back, but to look forward and to call for a fairer Wales, a richer Wales, a free Wales.

YesCymru and AUOBCymru are volunteer-led grassroots organisations dedicated to advancing the cause of an independent Wales.
