Huge growth in support for YesCymru and independence

Speaking at YesCymru's AGM in Merthyr Tydfil today, YesCymru Chairman Siôn Jobbins said:


"Thousands took to the streets in 2019 to declare their wish to see an independent Wales at AUOB Cymru marches - something that has never happened before - and discussing independence for Wales is now becoming an everyday and natural part of life and conversation for the people of Wales.


"Former Welsh First Minister, Carwyn Jones, spoke at one of YesCymru’s public meetings at the National Eisteddfod, and a September 2019 YouGov poll showed that between 32%* and 41%* would vote for independence in a referendum depending on the question.


“The number of YesCymru members has trebled since the last general meeting to around 2,500, and new groups have been set up all over Wales and are busy spreading the positive message of independence. There has also been tremendous growth on social media, with our Twitter followers doubling, from 10 thousand to 20 thousand, in a year. "

A new Yougov poll published on WaleOnline today has shown a surge in support for an independent Wales. 32%* said they would be certain to vote for independence in a referendum, with 41%* supporting the idea of an independent Wales in the EU if Brexit happens.

Responding to the poll, Siôn Jobbins – the Chair of YesCymru, the campaign for an independent Wales – said:

"This poll has the support for independence at the highest level ever, and clearly shows that the people of Wales are warming towards the idea of Wales becoming an independent nation state just like Ireland, Iceland or Denmark.

"Westminster isn’t working, and people are realising that Wales can do a better job of running its own affairs than being ruled by Westminster.
