A march for Welsh independence will take place in Carmarthenshire.

On June 22, YesCymru and All Under One Banner Cymru (AUOBCymru) are rallying support in historic Carmarthen, Wales’ oldest town, for their next March for Independence.

This first-ever mobilisation in the old county of Dyfed builds on the momentum from previous marches staged all across Wales since 2019. Thousands of patriots have participated in previous events held in destinations like Caernarfon and Cardiff, advocating for an independent Wales.

Supporters will meet at Carmarthen Park from 11am, and the march will officially start at 1pm. Participants are encouraged to bring flags, banners, whistles, and drums, as well as family and friends to share in the historical occasion.

Gaynor Jones from Carmarthenshire, speaking on behalf of YesCymru, 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 Carmarthen resident representing AUOBCymru shared: “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.”

Echoing the sentiment, Dylan Phillips, chairperson of YesCymru in Carmarthen, reminded the public of the region's history of activism, saying: "The spirit of freedom is woven like a silver thread through the history of the south west.

"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.”

Both YesCymru and AUOBCymru are volunteer-led grassroots organisations committed to the independence of Wales. More details about the march can be found on the respective websites and social media channels.
