All Under One Banner - the first AUOB March in Wales . Cardiff, May 11th . An open invitation to all .


The Cardiff AUOB march was well attended, estimated at 2-3,000 and  I was in attendance with my own group, Gwlad Gwlad.
Apart from the public address system, (I have no idea what anyone said !) all went well and I believe the organisers plan many more events. The next one Caernarfon, is on  Saturday July 27th


ALL Under One Banner is a Scottish Organisation whose aim is to bring all the pro Independence groups in Scotland together in large inclusive marches throughout Scotland. It encourages a show of total solidarity among all in favour of Scottish Independence whatever their politics or opinions. Recent marches have been impressive with large turn outs as shown below


The 100,000 strong Edinburgh AUOB March  October 2018, their largest march to date
.
The Scottish Independence movement is, at present, more popular and organised that our Independence movement in Wales.
They started organising these marches a month after the  2014 Independence referendum to keep up the momentum and the camaraderie of the independence campaign .



Below is one of their posters for a 2016 event which illustrates neatly one big  difference between the SNP  and Plaid Cymru. 

Scotland has more than one Scottish Political Party embracing the policy of  Scottish Independence. The S.N.P. would not be in charge of the Scottish Government today without the support of   Pro- Independence allies , currently the Scottish Greens.

The First Welsh March was on May 11th March and supported by many patriotic individuals and an increasing number of organisations:
 These include, All Under One Banner Scotland, Cymdeithas Yr Iaith Cymraeg, Welsh Football Fans for Independence, Gwlad Gwlad, Ein Gwlad, Yes is More, Plaid Cymru,  Awoken Cymru, Labour for an Independent Wales and Yes Cymru. 

It would be a great thing to see more people freely and confidently expressing their Welsh Identity, Culture and Patriotism and desire for change.  It was a good day out in Cardiff !.
