I am not talking of 'Welsh Medievalism, Native Princes, Norman Barons or English Kings pre 1536. Neither am I talking of 'Religious Wales' be it of Druids, Vicars or Preachers, other than to expose 'Religious Nationalist' lies and falsehoods associated with Protestant Cambro - Brit blurring of the reality of the Welsh being won over to the Tudors creating of an 'English Protestant Identity' that has placed us in chains or should that be bed with the 'old enemy' since 1536. Neither does Cultural Nationalism interest me other than exposing it's lies and falsehoods perpetuated madly in 19th Century Liberal Capitalist
Then in our times since a group of middle class Aberystwyth Students sat on
Trefechan Bridge and dodged being patriotically drafted to occupy the Village
of Capel Celyn aka 'Tryweryn Reservior' to resist it's destruction. Thus CyIG
was born but future tru Patriotism and National struggle thrown out with the
bath water. Taking the moral high road to their 'Cymric Dystopia' as a newly
born and encriched 'Crachach Newydd' aka 'England's Client Tribe' and well
rewarded at that as firmly entrenced in Media Wales, Universities and any
number of grant supported Welsh Middle Class creations, not least in the Arts
the defunct 'Cymru Cymraeg' preaching Class, Teachers and Piles of Pointless
Poets et al Wales
Why such an hard line, I recently spent a week in Dublin for the 100th Anniversary of the 1969 Easter Rising Commemoration, amongst much as attending parades, I visited four great Exhibitions:
All this got me thinking as to why the Irish for 100's of years fought so valiantly for their Freedom whilst as in 1916 whilst the Welsh gave up following the Glyndwr war of National Liberation or that is how it seems if you were taught Cambro - British History but that is not the complete truth for Gwerin
Owain outlaws contined to
fight back as 'Social Bandits' right up to 1536 being finnally suppressed by
the hanging judge Rowland Lee to pacify the people in readyness to press upon
them the 1536 Act of Annexation. The truths of our history in this and further
periods of our history can be found in the following blogs:

Introduction: The Great Partisans Cymru shall begin the new year as we mean to go on, with focus on 'Education To Be Free' via the web, events and activities as Saturday Schools, Field Trip Outings and Historical Plaque an Installation presentations.
Our history as a Year Zero starting point at 1282, at this point a semi - Independent Medieval Wales comes to an end as does the domination of Welsh Princes and Anglo - Norman Lords and English Kings. Increasingly hence we have an history of the people in Revolt, Insurrection and struggle lead by their own leaders and Movements.
This is the history we of Partisans Cymru hence will be concerned with and not of 'Welsh Princes' but of the Welsh people themselves in struggle against all those who would make themselves Lords over the People, Communities and their Land.
It is from this History we shall take interest and motivation for our Cause, Campaigns and Struggle.
