Two further marches organised by All Under One Banner and the pro-independence pressure group, Yes Cymru, were held in Caernarfon and Merthyr Tydfil on 27th July and 7th September respectively. An estimated 13,000 people took part in both marches combined, with celebrities and politicians addressing the crowds.
It followed the first pro-independence march, held in Cardiff on May 14th 2019, which attracted a bigger-than-expected crowd of around 3,000.
Former Everton and Wales international footballer, Neville Southall, told the Merthyr rally: “We need to build a country that looks after the lowest of the low. We need to take everybody and treat them the same. There should be no class system in Wales. Everyone should be the same.”
In Caernarfon, Scottish comedian Hardeep Singh Kohli said: “It is time for Wales, like Scotland, to become a nation restored. From Flint Castle to Chepstow in the south, it is time for the land of song to once again sing their own song.”
