Independence Cymru Seeks a Public Apology for Wales

An apology is overdue for the wrongs perpetrated by generations of Royalty and British government towards the people of Wales. The nation of Wales has been systematically infiltrated, divided and turned against itself by policies which attempted to eradicate the language, traditions and individual character of the Welsh people, who are distinctive and unique, just as their fellow Celts are proud, individual and unique in Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall and the Isle of Man.

For years the youth of Wales have been drawn into foreign wars on foreign soil fighting for a foreign power for foreign domination. They have been condemned to work underground in terrible conditions for a pittance to satisfy the desires of the captains of industry. The resources of Wales have been shipped across the world to feed the growth of commercial interests which have not benefitted the communities which gave their labour and their lives in exchange for food and shelter. There is another side to the vaunted glories of the British Empire. It concerns sustained emigration, to Patagonia, America, Australia and other faraway lands, to escape persecution, degradation, humiliation and neglect. The history books read in the schools of Wales are in need of revision, to reflect the unbiased truth of historical fact.

The people of Wales have long been deluded. It is time to awaken to truth and justice. Independence Cymru seeks a public apology for Wales and its people!

The Canadian government has made a formal apology to Canada's indigenous peoples. The French Catholic Church recently apologised for its collaboration with the Nazis during World War II. Tony Blair has apologised for the Irish famine and Nelson Mandela has apologised for ANC war crimes. The queen even came close to apologising for British massacres in India.

So yeah, it's about time the Saes apologised for the land-grabbing, ethnic cleansing and exploitation that they have subjected the Native Britons to for the last 1500 years. Absolutely.

And we in Cymru should stand up for ourselves too, stop being greatful for the leftovers. The coal-mines of Wales were some of the richest places in Britain... except if you lived there, where you had to grovel and say "thank you for employing me". We should have kicked the buggers out then. But that's in the past. We need to learn for the future... and we ARE...

None are "drawn into".


In fact, they are all willing volunteers and bravely fight for Queen and Country.

Yet again, your cheap and ill-thought remarks denigrating Military Service by Welsh men and women causes offence.

Kindly edit.

Maybe this post should be re-titled:

Welsh Military Personnel Seek a Public Apology from Independence Cymru.

I never retitle my posts and especially not on your recommendation.

...and continue to offend Welsh military personnel who have fought and died for your freedoms.

Is this the true face of Plaid Cymru?

Nonsense.
These wars are nothing to do with Wales or Plaid Cymru, or me.
They are not fighting in defence of our freedoms.
They are fighting "for Queen and Country" (Britain). I have no idea why, and neither do most people in Britain!
Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan are no threat to Wales, I can assure you.
Bring them home. Wales needs them here.
LetÅ› change our distorted thinking and not engasge in 19th century political adventurism!

Are you actually saying that those Welsh Service people who prevented an invasion of this country by the Nazis were wrong, misguided or were "drawn into" service.

Presumably you still adhere to the Saunders Lewis method of patriotism. Sneaking around collaborating with the Nazi invader. Shame on you. Have you no respect or gratitude.

Shame on you for your militaristic, reactionary and mistaken ideas.
