BREAKING: Thousands march in Cardiff calling for Welsh independence



Demonstrators say Brexit and austerity have increased support for leaving the UK


Thousands have demonstrated inCardiff to call for an independent Wales in what organisers said was the first such march in Welsh history.

Some protesters said they had been lifelong supporters of independence, while others said they were converted by Brexit and austerity. A recent poll for ITV Wales showed that 12% of people support self-government.

As the march ended with a rendition of the Welsh national anthem, Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau, Adam Price, leader of nationalist party Plaid Cymru, said that Welsh problems could be more easily solved if decisions were taken within the nation.

“For many years, our desire to see an independent Wales has seemed distant. But the tide is turning, the marches are growing, and the voices are louder,” he said.



“Decades of Westminster neglect have resulted in poverty and under-investment. A third of our children are living in relative poverty and you only have to look at the Brexit chaos to see that Westminster is not fit to govern or represent Wales.”

 How an act of anti-Welsh vandalism is fuelling the push for independence


Llywelyn ap Gwilym, a spokesperson for organiser All Under One Banner Cymru, told WalesOnline: “The debate around Wales’s constitutional future has intensified since the vote for the UK to leave theEuropean Union.

“Several groups believe that Wales and its people would have a better future as an independent nation outside the UK ... There is an increasing realisation that independence is normal.”
