Adfeddiant - Cymrwch y Tir yn Ol - Reclaim - Take Back the Land

Cymrwch y Tir yn Nol
Earlier this year on a number of occasions a number of acts of vandalism were carried out against the iconic slogan ‘Cofia Dryweryn’ painted on a wall outside Aberystwyth.
We have thus as if we had to been reminded of the struggle to save Capel Celyn from being drowned to make a reservoir for Liverpoool.
As important as this was historically it is now but an episode in a long history of our peoples struggles against tyrrany, oppression and exploitation of our country, communities and resources.
As example of the Forest of Snowdon Affair in the 16th Century, in Cwmwd Caeo in the same century whch gave us the rallying call of ‘Trech Gwlad Nag Arglwydd’, Mynydd Bach 1826 witnessed the ‘War of the Little Englishman’.
In the North too there were many similar struggles as against Enclosures in 1809 in Llanddeiniolen and at a later date there is the struggles of the ‘Vagabond Quarrymen’ of Gwynedd.
I could go on with this largelly ignored and forgotten history of the Peoples ‘Pitchfork and Pike’ struggles for Land and Liberty but yes we must remember this history but at the same time being aware that unless it motivates and prompts us to continue similar struggles in our times then we are but not truly respecting the memory of those who went before us and made sacrifices that would put us to shame if we remain but silent inactive observers to the continued oppression, tyrrany and exploitation of our country and communities today.
Not least in the unremitting advance of WAG Tan 8 Wind Farm Terrorism upon our land from the North, to Central Cymru, the West and in the South particularly in area of Pen y Cymoedd, Cwm Rhondda and in a truly hideous example that may soon begin to devastate a wonderful Southern wilderness landscape of five Mountains with construction of a virtual rural motorway to take Turbines to Mynydd Y Gwair, there to build a Rural Windmill Farm – Industrial Landscape to the enrichment of the Duke of Somerset aka the English Aristocrat Absentee Landlord family of the Beauforts who were given this land and other vast acres throughout the South by Charles II as reward for their support in the English Civil War.
This act of Tan 8 Terrorism given licence by WAG and further permission by Swansea Council to build the 16 turbine Mynydd y Gwair Wind Farm now sees the company seeking permission to construch the aforementioned road that along with the Windfarm and existing Windfarm upon Mynydd y Bettws will further desecrate this wonderful rual landscape and no doubt drive off the Red Kites who have only recently returned all to the great finnancial benefit of RWE the’New Conquistadore’ and the ‘Old Conquistadore’ Beaufort Family. Together they are the present day ‘Cheque Book Conquest’ Economic colonisers who with others of this ilk seek to make of Wales ‘Corporate Colony Cymru’.
RWE and the Somerset Trust are at present engaged in an inquiry as to obtain permission to construct the said road. Opposing them are some 300 objectors of whom are 20 graziers, the inquiry has been taking place at the Dylan Thomas centre over a number of days but as now adjourned to the Summer when it will continue you again. Up to now the Welsh Media have shown very little interest in this issue or the aforementioned inquiry, hopefully this will change when the inquiry begins anew in the Summer.
Not least by then also Welsh Patriots as well as pobl Glyndwr – Tarian Glyndwr campaign, Partisan Cymru activists of Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr and Adfeddiant – ‘Cymrwch Y Tir Yn Nol’ – Wales Land Question Campaign renewed also ‘Hawliau’ members will rally to the cause of defending these mountains and engage in what may become an epic struggle of total patriotic resistance to construction of the Windmill Road – THE TURBINES SHALL NOT PASS!
As first stage it what may become known in our history as ‘The War with the Big Englishman’ aka Name? Duke of Somerset .
In conclusion I will remind that this Robber Baron as already in recent years ripped off Swansea Council to the tune of £280.000 plus £6.000 so that they could build a foot bridge over the River Tawe to the English Crown held land upon which the Tawe Retail Park stands.
Thus not only does the Somerset Trust ownership off the Tawe Riverbed enrich they, so too the Crown Estate rips off some ground rent to fill their coffers and that is something the ‘Beaufort Bunch’ have also been doing for centuries from Glamorgan to Gwent.
Is it not time we told them to get out and campaigned radically hard to get rid of them, to reclaim our land – Take it back and I suggest see it ‘Communalised’ in interest of local people and communities and most certainly not Absenttee ‘English Aristocratic’ Land Lords as the ‘Beaufort Bunch’. They by the way now also seek to make a mint, it suggested being as much as another £280.000 to allow a National Motor Circuit of Wales to be build in Gwent.
Already the propsers of this scheme true to form as similar to what got us stuck with Valley Wood and much else we now have to subsidise are talking about requiring Financial Support from WAG.
I suggest that if WAG is as dumb to give them such a subsidy which will also benefit the ‘Beaufort Bunch’, then if so, I would make a call for Patriots to occupy that Assembly which is proving so liberal with our money as recently too, £30m to Pinewood Studios to set up in ‘Bae Caerdydd’, why not in that empty Valley Wood?
A Radical Cultural Conclusion
 A 16th Century View Of The Land Grabbing Lords of the Land.
'Being oppressive and detestable;
scorning God and his commanments;
harrassing the weak for his land and welfare,
and behaving with abundant arrogance'.
Sion Brwynog who in 1597 wrote in reference to the 
Forest of  Snowdon Controversy: 
Below couplet, written to remind of Rhyfel y Sais Bach 1826 and of Siaci Ifan y Gof, sounding his horn in a call to action of the time on Mynydd Bach:
Fe dwythwyrd yr udgorn
ar ben yr Hebryg Fawr
Dach mwy na mil o ddynion
ynghyd mewn hanner awr.
The horn was sounded on Hebryg Fawr.
More than a 1000 men came together
in half an hour.
Most poigniant and resonating down the ages:
'Trech Gwlad Nag Arglwydd
