SO NEARLY A FREE NATION? BUT YOU CAN STILL MAKE IT SO, BUT ONLY IF YOU AWAKE, ARISE AND RAISE UP THE STANDARD FOR SOVEREIGNTY NOW!
YOU HAVE THIS SUMMER TO CONSIDER, THAT HAVING FAILED TO LISTEN TO MY APPEAL FOR PATRIOTS TO RALLY TO CORWEN ON AND ABOUT 16 MEDI 2008 'Dydd Glyndwr' TO LAUNCH A 'SAVE OUR SOVERIEGNTY' CAMPAIGN. You did nought but ignore my best intentions and continued to blog away or otherwise go around despondent about 'Dilettante Devolutionism' and foolishly believing that PLAID in it's 'Coalition Conspiracy' with Labour would deliver a Referendum on more Powers for the 'Bae Caerdydd' Assembly of Neo - Colonial Advancement, true but foolish Welsh Nationalists believing this would be a step along the road to Welsh Independence. Wrong yes! So what you going to do about it now?

THAT EURO ELECTION - What Next For Wales & Welsh Nationalist Movement & Struggle For Independance? Roll Over And Surrender, FIN!
Not much for the 'Welsh Nats' to write home about really, not with the Tories turning Wales Blue but for the 'Hwntw' aka 'Silurian Socialist South' of 'the Valley's aka Blaenau Morgannwg keeping true to the Labour Party, even though a fast declining and disappearing support. Gone are the days when people voted for Donkeys as long as they wore Red Rossettes, but where was the PLAID (Cymru) break through, interesting all of 'Tiroedd Cunedda' went Green in terms of votting pattern. However, they only retained that one Euro seat of Jill Evans PLAID MEP or has some rather unkindly call her, the MEP for Gaza!
I am further intrigued as to why CYMUNED is kind of moving into what is ''Political Territory'' maybe, and via the English Language too? HHHhhhmmm! are they feeling the wind of contracting 'Cymru Cymraeg' and as S4C seeking a broader approach and English Speakers to sustain themselves? Or maybe CYMUNED does have political pretentions in their 'Cymric Closet', I have no doubt that if they do they are likly to be of a 'Cultural Right' kind of Politics. Given that there are links between they and the thoughts of the ''Agony Aunt of Abergynolwyn'' (Swansea Jac), the 'Balchderiad' and the 'Cambrianistas', more of Census Campaign/WIP roots that meander around Henry Jones Davies and John 'Gardner' Humphries, than 'Y Cyfamodwyr' Cream Crakers (ref to how easy they crumbled up, no longevity at all).

Sigh! Long drawn out sigh! just discovered this long piece of 'intellectuality' on the web (see link below), I am partly sighing because I do not have the time to read it. But having had a quickie suss I came accross the 'over egging' of the role of CyIG in the Anti - Investiture Campaign with much emphasis on the pathetic walk out at that Urdd Eisteddfod. Yes the same one recently glorified by Crachach Cymru PLC at the NLW complete with presentation of heaped honours upon the poem Wylit, Wylit Llywelyn or as I like to pun: ''Will it, Will it ever come to a real fight on behalf of Llywelyn'' who by now must be rolling in unbearable anguish in crocadile tear sodden Cymric soil?
As for inviting artists to come up with artistic interpretations of Wylit, Wylit, I am not impressed by the results. I can think of much better and worthier and more meaningful 'Adfywiad Artistic' Agit - Prop Interpretations' that could have been made, but I had better shut up or I may be held responsible for some act of ''Patriotic Madness''
BE PREPARED TO VOMIT > This link > http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/northwest/sites/caernarfon/pages/investiture.shtml is a good indication of the growing interest in the 40th Anniversary of the Investiture and the Adfywiad Gwladgarol against it. Note you can leave contributions on this link, so go ahead and do so, as per guidelines. IF THERE WAS EVER A GOOD REASON FOR THE PATRIOTIC STALWARTS OF CAMBRIA MAGAZINE TO GO AROUND CAERNARFON WITH THEIR PATHETIC PETITION, THIS LINK WILL PROVE TO THEY, WHY THEY MUST OF NECESSITY TRY TO CONVINCE THE TOWN'S PEOPLE NOT TO CAMPAIGN FOR ANOTHER INVESTITURE WHICH THEY MIGHT JUST DO. IF THEY DID, I WOULD BE HALF WAY TO SAYING GO AHEAD BUT THEN SERIOUSLY CAMPAIGN FOR THE SOUTH TO BREAK AWAY FROM THE NORTH, AND LET THEM HAVE THEIR ENGLISH PRINCE - AFTER ALL IS HE NOT ANYWAY MADE JUST PRINCE OF PURA WALLIAE?
Other than this I know that a TV crew is going around making a documentary based on the Humphries book 'Freedom Fighters', I refused to participate. I have also refused to participate in a film being made, based on a to 'Dream of Freedom', my reasons for not participating are for various reasons. In main, I have never been associated since 1969 with any media interpretations or documentaries of any kind, and I am not going to start now.
However, I hope to do an Interview with a 'Patriotic Documentary News Service' soon, and that I am told will be posted to 'Your Tube' or be 'Video Streamed' as well on one of my own blogs later in June. A film is being made of Ian Bones 'Class War' in which the FWA are featured and ITV Wales are making a documentary on the 'Investiture Troubles' to be shown on the 22 June - 'Dydd Bryn Glas'. I dare say that the LPDP & WM will publish Commemorative Investiture Souvenir supplements as will the media in general so feature, and I of course will be posting much more on the Adfywiad Gwladgarol 1962 - 69 on my AWNM&S History Archive and other blogs during course of June and July.
So an exciting period ahead, with much to inspire but hopefully not passively but more pro-actively protesting in and around Caernarfon on 1 July 2009, yes! ....with the Poets on the 'Dias of Domination', maybe? but not likly! or with Balchder Cymru sometime during the day? Myself, I think Cambria Magazine Crowd and Y Crachach Newydd, should reserve pride of place and time for themselves that day, at the Gate of Caernarfon Castle at 3:00pm on 1 July 2009. To show us Working Class patriots whom are some times called incorrectly 'Y Werin', that next time around you will be leading from the front and standing shoulder to shoulder with the 'Adfywiadwyr Gwladgarol' behind the barricades...... 'Beneath the paving stones - the beach'.
As sure as day follows night, if I do not see some 'Crachach Newydd' and 'Celebs Cymru' patriotically protesting as suggested above this 1st July 2009, I shall for sure advise Working Class 'Gwerin' to forget any Anti - Investiture Struggle at a future date. Instead I will advise learn how to culturaly grovel, grab a grant-bag of 'Saxon Shillings' and learn how to write poetry, get published and go read it on a beach as far from Caernarfon, even Cymru as possible. Just forget the type of 'Nationalist Nonsense' I am always indulging in, but not for much longer perhaps?
If you cannot make Caernarfon on 1 July, there's always the following days, not least on the 4th July, a Saturday. Why not organise BLAG FLAG MOTORCADES from your community to and around Caernarvon via laying tributes on graves of the Abergele Martyrs. Whatever, as best as you can note and observe, that on 1st July 2009, all your roads really need to lead to Caernarfon, maybe if possible via Abergele. DO NOT MISS THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY OF OCCAISION, to say you were there on that day, and so have inspired future generations to be there, next time they try and foist an investiture on us.
Golly gosh! I just got to stopt talking like an Irish Rebel and writing like some seriously patriotic Serb, these guys started WW I over an insult to their patriotic pride. Serbs have long memories, and as the Irish are not so easly bought out as the Cymry, but on the 1 July 2009 you can show Wales and the World again, there are some Cymry who will never be bought out or so beaten down on their knees that they will never rise again.............FE GODWN NI ETO!.
The aforementioned Investiture Interpretation Exhibition along with the 'Investiture Throne' has been in Caernarfon Castle for 40 years, same the 'Dias of Domination'. You maybe as incredulous as I to realise that Gwynedd Patriots have done nothing about this in all this time, as for instance the setting up of an alternative Exhibition in the town telling the truth about Conquest Cymru 1282 - 84. Wylit, Wylit Llywelyn, a wake up call? No! I think not, it will take more than a poem to make Wales Awake! to threat of another Investiture of another Englishman as Prince of Wales. More so an huge Demonstration of Patriotic Feeling that warns of another 'Adfywiad Gwladgarol', if 'William Wales' is foisted upon as the next English Prince of Wales.

Departure from a Political Position
The time has come in my opinion for a re-evaluation of Plaid's position in the political line-up at the Welsh National Assembly. Whatever the major parties in Wales may say to the contrary they are British parties dedicated to the maintenance of the Union. Plaid Cymru, in this perspective, is the only party of Wales, a party formed for the aim of severing the connection with the United Kingdom and esttablishing an indaependent social and democratic republic as Ireland has done. Saunders Lewis and his fellow republicans followed in the footsteps of Padraig Pearse, Eamonn de Valera and other patriots who saw England as a brutal colonising power which did not respect the rights of other nationalities to govern themselves and live in a free society.In northern Ireland the Unionists are in coalition with Sinn Fein. In the Welsh Assembly Labour is in coalition with Plaid. With a General Election in the offing this is an unhealthy situation for both Sinn Fein and Plaid Cymru. The public will associate both nationalist parties with the failed and discredited policies of the Labour government and these parties could well be damaged by the association. In recent polls support for Labour has collapsed and the party is becoming increasingly seen as a party of spin, sleaze, deception and incompetency. Leading figures have been exposed and discredited and their slick words are no longer believed. Labour has fallen to third place beneath the Lib Dems for the first time in 22 years, and in the European context they have fallen beneath the UKIP party.Therefore it would seem that the interests of Plaid and consequently the interests of the Welsh nation are not well-served by remaining in coalition with Labour. It may well be in the strategic interests of Plaid to pull out of the tenuous political association. Thus Plaid would be enabled to pursue its own unadulterated policies unencumbered by restraints and as a result would gain stature with the electorate.It would reinforce the party as a party with principle and purpose, focused on a campaign for a Welsh Parliament leading to independence, while at the same time attending to more pressing and immediate concerns, both social and economic and of great public concern, and subsequently the fundamental reformation of Welsh society. Comments welcomed...!

CROESO i CAERNARFON Iaf GORFFENNAF 2009 - 40th Anniversary 1969 Anti - Investiture Struggle Commemoration? PROTEST NOT PETITION!
Charles Windsor 'Carlo' was crowned as 'Tywysog Cymru' in Caernarfon Castle at 3:pm on 1st July 1969, and so we had yet another Englishman as Prince of Wales foisted upon us. If you do not want another Englishman 'William Wales' Invested as Prince of Wales, then Patriots wake up and arise and radically purposefully protest - NOT PATHETICALLY PETITION!
To date Balchder Cymru has taken up the challenge to make a purposeful protest stand against another Investiture of an Englishman as Prince of Wales. BC will be making its stand at the Gate of Caernarfon Castle on 1 July 2009. Hopefully they will be joined by the staff & contributors of Cambria Magazine to prove they are up for radical protest action as well as passive petitioning around the town and in all the 'Three Feather' pubs to convince the locals that another Investiture is really a very bad idea!. Not least, I further hope that CRACHACH CYMRU PLC will also be there in their 1000's. Not least enough Welsh poets to fill up in full the Dias of Domination within the Castle. If successfull a record breaking claim could be made to Guiness Book of Records as to how many Welsh Poets are not after all, such servile grant grabbers of 'Saxon Shillings'.
Start organising for this event, spread the word and start to make Protest Placards and slogan banners plus of course bring all our Freedom Flags; Baneri Llywelyn, Baneri Glyndwr, Baneri Y Ddraig Goch and Baneri Dewi Sant and not least 1831 Baneri Goch, Welsh Republican Flags and yes! plenty of White Eagle flags.
I hope as many patriots as possible, not least families with children visits the castle, in particular the Investiture Exhibition room within the castle, to gaze upon infamy and lack of concern by Gwynedd Patriots in particular. Why? for allowing such exhibition to exist - such which not only makes light of Conquest 1282 but misleads and ilinforms on historical truth, not least regard the persecution and destruction of the native Royal Family of Gwynedd from which our native Welsh 'High Kings' came. This Investiture Exhibition makes it seem that not only were the Welsh eager to accept centuries of English Princes of Wales, but that it is made to appear their 700 odd years of existence are more important than a 1000 year history of native Cymric Kings, Princes and Chiefs. This native history made less signifigant in the story of Cymru. Why this Investiture Exhibition has never been challenged and replaced, or an alternative one established in the town, is just beyond me! I am quite sure that such similar would never have been allowed in true nations by real nationalists as in Ireland or Serbia, and Gwynedd has had a so called Nationalist Council - for how long? Amazing!!! Now what is going to be done about it?..and it gets worse, see below >
